Cellers Can Blau Montsant
Based in the village of Mas Roig this newly established operation has 35 ha comprising Cariñena planted on sandy/clay soils, Garnacha on slate and Syrah on chalk. Nuria López Sarroca is in charge of crafting wines of splendid elegance as well as intensity. The Can Blau is dark, smokey and full of rich sweet fruit, the Mas de Can Blau more intense and complex, with a marked old-viney quality as well as a piercing minerality underpinning the wine. Both are bottled unfined and unfiltered. A more forward fruit driven example Blau is also made. (DM)
