Mas Elena 2018
Fruit and oak, soft and persistent. The balance of Yin and Yang is created in Mas Elena with the coupage of the three varieties – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
The soft Merlot combined with the structure and spice of the two Cabernets.
One empowering the other; and together creating a total balance of roundness and multiple layers.
|71% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc cultivated applying biodynamic farming.|
|Cured meat, grilled beef, grilled fish and tasty cheese.|
|Maceration and fermentation of the three varieties separately under a controlled temperature of 25° C.|
|Ageing 8 months in 2nd and 3rd year old French Allier oak barrels.|
|Intense ruby blue tinges.|
|On the nose a wonderful explosion of fruits combined with good balance and a soft touch from the ageing in the barrel. Background notes of liquorices and spice which increases complexity and intensity.|
|On the palate the wine is elegant and fresh, savory with a good structure and long aftertaste. The Retro nasal perception of red fruit aromas, very well integrated with the toasty notes from the oak.|
|Serve at 16 – 18°C.|
