Vivid and deep-red color with a violet hue. Its brilliance isvery attractive and transmits the strength and potential evolution of the wine. In the nose it displays pure red and bluish fresh fruit, notes of fennel and fragrant aromas like a cluster of violets, with cassis, black fruit and also espresso that transmits a lot of energy. When swirling the glass, mature notes such as marmalade appear, with aromatic herbals that provide freshness and minerality. It is a very complex wine, forming different layers and expressing all sensorial aromatics at a high level. In the mouth it has soft tannins that fill the palate with a juicy fruit finish. After a few minutes in the glass, glamorous red fruit notes come up, and the eleganceof its gentle acidity and tannins make the wine silkier and smoother.
|Clos Mogador is a winery found in the village of Gratallops. It was founded in 1982, and is owned by Rene Barbier, one of the Priorat´s Renaissance pioneers. These pioneers came in the late 70’s and introduced French varietals and modern winemaking techniques. This led to the production of rare and exceptional wines, resulting in promoting Priorat to a DOC, the highest wine category in Spain.
Clos Mogador winery covers 13 hectares. Six hectares are made of 80 years old Carinena, two hectares of 6 years old Cabernet-Sauvignon, three hectares of 6 years old Garnacha and 2 ha of 6 year old are Syrah.
The cellar produces 1000 cases of Manyetes wine on a 10 ha surface. It is very difficult to produce more quantities of Manyetes wine due to the quality of the soil. The vineyards of Clos Mogador grow in one of the poorest schist soils, Licorella, of the Priorat DOC.
