Review

The result of a long-awaited project that has taken over 15 years to come to fruition, with a maturation of the same length of time, following the age-old method of fractional blending using tiers of butts, the ‘criaderas’ and ‘soleras’ used to mature fortified wines in Jerez.

Joan Milà is behind it, fulfilling a dream by creating a fortified wine with his favourite grape variety, Merlot. Its lovely name refers to a moving, emotional poem, composed without concern for metre or rhyme, exactly like this sweet wine was produced, without regard for rules or regulations, purely the fruit of intuition and enthusiasm.

Serve on its own or to accompany pâté de foie gras, desserts or fruit salads.

Matured over a period of 15 years using the ‘criadera’ and ‘solera’ system.

    sorprendente

    excelente vino singular y original.Dulce no empalagoso y se nota la solera.Final muy largo,un vino diferente

    Dulce con enorme personalidad

    Original vino dulce monovarietal de merlot y sistema de soleras y criaderas. El resultado, un dulce marcado por una enorme personalidad, por su bonito color, ámbar enrojecido, o por una nariz compleja y exuberante, en la que dominan inicialmente las notas rancias de la peculiar crianza, para acabar saliendo moras, higos y golosos frutos secos. Buena entrada en boca, animada por una chispa ácida y moderación dulce, sin densidad excesiva. Muy largo, para deleites sin prisas.

    Albert and Joan Mila decided in the early 1980s to establish their own winery in the same house where they grew up and came to love the world of viticulture. Located in the most easterly part of the Penedès region, at the foot of the Ordal and Garraf mountain ranges, influenced by the sea and protected to the north by the beautiful massif of Montserrat, Mas Comtal enjoys excellent conditions for vine-growing: 40 ha. of vineyards planted with the native variety Xarel.lo, Cha...
