2016 Mas d'en Gil Coma Alta
Masia Barril, the first winery to produce wines in the DO Priorat, has regained its original name, Mas d'en Gil, since 1998, when it was taken over by the Rovira Carbonell family. Located in Bellmunt, 350 meters above sea level, this bodega is blessed with a specific microclimate with warm, humid southeast winds, which give the wines a complex and differentiated character.
Coma Alta is Coma Blanca's little brother, but from a different father. It used to be Viognier who played a dominant role, but since millésime 2012, a thorough change has been made and the wine consists of 100% Garnatxa blanca. The wine is slightly fresher and more accessible than the Coma Blanca but so wonderfully balanced. Coma stands for a valley and Alta points out that it is higher. The grapes are harvested in two batches, the first for freshness, and the second for more ripeness. 30% of the garnacha grapes are aged for 6 months in French oak barrels of 500 liters, 'sur lies' and the rest in stainless steel. This white priorat has a bouquet of spices, flowers and ripe stone fruit (peach) lined by the French oak. Full-bodied, filling and balance, with the southern jacket of white Grenache. A sturdy lad that serves best as a meal wine. Combines well with hard cheeses and white meat. Only 3,868 bottles of this beautiful white Priorat have been filled and all bottles are numbered
