Mas Doix Salanques 2005
The 2005 Salanques deep purple color speaks to how highly concentrated and extracted this wine is, and the floral aromas, black fruit and chalky minerality speak to the pedigree of the vineyards. On the palate, the wine is completely balanced, with full body, good acid, ripe tannins, and a velvety mouthfeel.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The phylloxera outbreak did not mean the end of the family's vineyards. They were replanted with the Garnacha and Carinena varieties, native to the Priorat region, thereby maintaining the growth of the vineyards while the production was sent to the cooperative in Poboleda until it was able to be produced in Mas Doix's winery. Nowadays, the family labors with love and passion for the fruit grown in their hundred-year-old vineyards so they can produce great wines.
