Blau 2012, Montsant - I Blame The Wine
Blau Montsant

Blau 2012, Montsant

Blau 2012 is coming from Montsant region, which is adjacent to Priorat, but doesn’t have their remarkable slate soils, and also the price tag. Yet all and all, the wines could be compared to the more prominent brother, and they normally offer a very intriguing complexity.

Blau MontsantThis wine comes with the typical alcoholic strength of 14% and is a generous blend of Carignan, Garnacha, and Syrah grapes.

It shows black fruit, some red fruit and some sharp aspect of spice – it mixes up with the high acidity yet comes out quite strong. Its above-mentioned acidity is not really round, but sharp, yet the fruitiness doesn’t disappoint – Expect it to be pronounced and underlines with an interesting touch of wood.

I find this Montsant wine to be quite thin as red fruit is coming more straightforward a bit later. You can find an array of simple yet pleasant flavours, so have it as a good partner for Spanish jamon and tapas.
