Tasting Note:

Martinet Bru is the perfect introduction to the Mas Martinet style. A softer, silkier expression with more easy-going up front fruit, it drinks beautifully young, as many of Barcelona’s top restaurants can attest to. The grapes for Martinet Bru are all picked at the same time and co-fermented. “We want to keep alcohols on the lower side and maximise elegance. I therefore co-ferment to average the different ripeness levels and build freshness in to the wine.” Bru is a blend of predominantly Grenache and Syrah with a little Carignan, Cabernet and Merlot. Since 2010 this has come from a single vineyard that sits just outside of Falset. In Sara Perez’s words, “2018 will be seen as a new inflection point in the history of Priorat. It is the best vintage I have ever seen.”
