About the wine

Priorat, Spain
Garnacha (40%), Cariñena (60%)

Priorat wines are among the most recognized in Spain and are praised by wine critics the world over. Mas de Subria is made in Bellmunt del Priorat and was founded in 1997. “Mas” means a country or farm house and “Subria” is a family name – the House of Subira is proudly displayed on the label. With 170 acres of land, only 47 are planted vineyards, many of which are 25 to 40 years old. The elevation is between 550 and 700 feet.

Star bright cherry red with hints of deep purple lead into intense aromas with full, fine, ripe fruit and some floral notes. Good terroir developed minerality with a lovely backdrop of wild aromatic herbs. The palate opens bright and beautifully balanced. Delicate tannins balance delicious ripe red fruits and floral flavors and combine with a light touch of minerality.

Food Pairing

With the wine’s bright acidity and rich red fruit flavors it pairs well with oven roasted mussels, braised meats and rich cheeses.
