Mas Mallola

2008

Mas Mallola represents the style of Porrera, the distinctive village in Priorat where Marco Abella is based. Porrera wines are the highest altitude of the nine Priorat villages and are notable for their high acidity and balanced character. Mas Mallola is a blend of the Priorat's two indigenous varieties, Grenache (63%) and Carignan (20%), with an added touch of Cabernet Sauvignon (11%) and Merlot (6%). The grapes come from Estate organic vineyards that are treated using biodynamic methods. The wine is aged in French oak barrels from five different coopers, lending it a balanced complexity.
