Review

The Mineral del Montsant is a fruity and juicy wine like all the Cara Nord Celler wines, and balanced and round like all Montsant wines. Made with fruit from 40-year-old bush vines, the main grape in its blend is Carignan, softened by the sweetness of Grenache.

Irregular terrains, sustainable agriculture and a dry climate ensure the grapes reach an excellent level of quality. Chalky and red clay soils with a certain degree of influence from the continental climate give character to every single bunch of grapes. The grapes, fruit of a year's hard work, are respected in the production process thanks to a careful ageing in wood.

A bright red colour with a seductive nose of cherries, vanilla and white pepper. Aromas of scrubland and black fruit skins over a mineral background give way to more delicate floral hints which appear over time. Flavoursome and fresh from the very first sip, it is an enveloping wine with a saline touch. Spongy and airy thanks to abundant but clear tannins, it has enough acidity to counterbalance the fine taste of liqueur, while the wood adds hints of smoke and ash which create a suggestive and well-balanced wine. A powerful and elegant wine with lactic sensations appearing as it stands in the glass as well as flavours of red fruit jam adorned with cinnamon and black pepper. A subtle and balanced finish, with graphite minerality and toasted coffee-like hints from its time spent in the barrel.

Herausfordernd und spannend

Das modern gestaltete Etikett des „Mineral del Montsant“ lockt das Auge. Erst auf den zweiten Blick ist der Umriss des Weinanbaugebiets Montsant zu identifizieren. Es umringt das hier weißgehaltene Priorat fast vollständig. Erkennbar ist auch die Darstellung eines überaus bunten Flickenteppichs unterschiedlicher Bodenbeschaffenheit. Tatsächlich wird der Montsant-Untergrund von kalkig-lehmigen, tonhaltigen, sandigen, auch granitartigen Böden dominiert, die für extrem spannungsreiche Weine sorgen können. Der „Mineral del Montsant“, hergestellt in El Masroig, ist einer dieser spannungsreichen Weine und passt wunderbar zu Tomàs Cusiné und seinen bemerkenswerten „Cara Nord“-Weinen aus der Conca de Barberà. Doch mit dem „Mineral“ und dessen 80:20 Anteilen Carinyena und Garnatxa setzt Tomàs Cusiné ein besonderes Ausrufezeichen. Im Glas ist ein duftender, eigenwilliger, anspruchsvoller, sehr herausfordernder Montsant-Wein. Purpurrot, fast violette Optik; in der Nase überreife dunkle Früchte, sanft-würzig, erdig, etwas Holz; reif und fruchtig im Mund, mineralisch, ruppig, schmirgelnde Tannine, gutes Säurespiel; langanhaltender Nachklang. Herausforderung und Spannung in einem.
