Winemaker Notes

A fresh interpretation of the terroir and Mediterranean influences of the Montsant appellation.

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah

Critical Acclaim

WE 88
Wine Enthusiast
Roasted plum, baked berry and jammy aromas can't be missed, but it's structured and not at all soft in the mouth, with wild berry, cherry and boysenberry flavors. It really pours on the fruit, ending fresh with no nonsense.

Mas Sorrer, Spain
Mas Sorrer captures the charm of the region of Montsant with its steep slopes of old vine Garnacha and Carinena that has inspired Sara Perez and Rene Barbier, Jr. the same way that Priorat did to their parents 20 years ago. Formerly known as the Fallset subzone of Taragona, Montsant’s 2,000 ha of vineyards were given their own DO in order to highlight their superior quality in 2001. The grand Montsant escarpment that gives this region its name rises majestically over diverse parcels that range from granitic sand around Falset, to compacted calcareous soil, to sites covered in codols (pebbles and larger rounded stones) to slate in others. This soil diversity coupled with the large number of old vines, gives Montsant wines their distinct element of terroir and complexity.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
