"The 2012 Pur is a blend of Syrah, Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon aged in barrel for three months. It has a young, fresh and fruity nose of red and black berries with notes of licorice and hints of flowers, with a fresh, lively, medium-bodied palate with a supple and licorice-driven aftertaste. Ideal with charcuterie. Drink now-2017. Mas Oller is the Emporda property of Carlos Esteva, owner of Can Rafols dels Caus in Penedes. This was an old vineyard before phyloxera, where the soils have a base of clay with slate but the vines disappeared with the plague. Esteva decided to resume the wine tradition of the property in 2000 and he produced some experimental wines between 2004 and 2008, finally launching his first commercial wines from the 2008 harvest in 2009."

Product Description:

"Mas Oller is located in an area that combines sea and mountain, very marked by the presence of wind, and the north where a diversity of soils are combined: clay, sand and slate. Conceptually and geographically, the project of Mas Oller connects northern Catalonia, Empordà and Roussillon with the wines being as expressive as they are fresh. Currently, Mas Oller has 17 hectares of vineyard in production. The three red varieties are Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon..." Winery
