MAS DE L'ABUNDÀNCIA

  • Grenache
  • Carignan
High intensity and sharp. In the border, red predominates with bluish tones. On the nose, very good intensity, with frank aromas. In the beginning, predominance of mineral, menthol and balsamic aromas. When we shake the glass appear fresh red fruits, accompanied by touches of cedar and chocolate, strawberries and blackberries. On the palate, very fresh entry, with silky tannins that accompany the wine throughout the mouth.
The entrance has a predominance of fresh, citrus fruit and as the wine evolves the minerality and the cedar touches appear that give complexity and volume to the wine. The post taste is long and fresh.

HE·MA

  • Grenache
  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Carignon
It came in red and blue tones, violet edge and with a medium intensity. Its aromatic intensity is high, with the presence of red fruit and shades of low forest Mediterranean and species.
Fresh entry with a good evolution because of a very good concentration of soft tannins that end in a long finish. When entering the mouth, thanks to its freshness, red fruits predominate and the same notes of Mediterranean forest under its aroma and a long aftertaste.

The farm has a very rich soil diversity: The parent rock is a primary carboniferous formed by pressure and temperature; the so-called "llicorella" slate of grayish tones with pyrite veins integrated into it. This bedrock is what gives the typicity to the soils of our farm.

ORIGIN

WE HAVE A HISTORY

Mas de l’Abundància is located in the region of Priorat (Tarragona) and belongs to the D.O. Montsant. Up until the disentailment, in the 1830s, it belonged to the Prior of Scala Dei (the property still has three magnificent landmarks with the same boundaries of 1790). It had previously belonged to the Dukes of Cardona and Entenza, who gave it to the Prior on the 27 January 1727. It was always was a self-sufficient estate, with planted vines, olive trees and a vegetable garden that allowed for its own subsistence. The estate takes its name, back from the fifteenth century, to the excellent geographical location and to the quantity and quality of its products. The soil type is “llicorella” (Tertiarycoal) and alluvium from the Quaternary; it has its own spring water and is located between the Siurana River and the old village of Les Pinyeres, place of country worship, where from immemorial times the virgin of the same name is revered. The current winery was created in 2002 by the del Rio Mateu family with the dream of returning to the origins and follow an unbroken family tradition for generations, with a desire to produce a wine of “terroir”. From the beginning the objectives were putting effort, faithful dedication to the cultivation of the vine and extreme care in wine-making. Since 1995, when the project began, the two mottos are:

  • You can be humble but you should be excellent
  • Not only well made, but also pretty.

THE ESTATE

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

The estate has about 8 hectares of which there are 4 planted on the rock of “llicorella” type, which is very typical in the lands of the Priorat and gives these wines their special personality.

The types of grapes that are produced are Grenache and Carignan, both coming from prefiloxeric clones, and Cabernet Sauvignon, which is an type of grave of low performance imported from the best French vines. All three varieties are planted at the “slides” and the “patches” of the estate. Ultimately, the planting in this estate responds to the particular situation of the territory and its organoleptic characteristics, a fact that allows us to obtain high yields of quality grapes that, after careful elaboration, confer great wines.

Our way of working and our philosophy are controlled carefully at all times and by professional experts. This is the only way we can guarantee the top quality of our wines.

THE WINERY

CAREFUL PROCESS FROM THE VINE TO THE BOTTLE

The trajectory of the winery begins in 2002 and it represents the beginning of a dream and an effort that gives as a result these very special wines. We elaborate our wines in a completely hand crafted way. From the collection and selection of the grapes to the wine making itself everything is done manually and traditionally. The winery belongs to the Denomination of Origin Montsant and has a limited production capacity which is divided between our “terroir” wines, He·Ma and Flvminis, Mas de l’Abundància, which has the name of the winery and de Calpino, which recently has been awarded by the Wines Guide of Catalonia as the best white wine of Catalonia 2015. We have 22 barrels of 225 liters (Bordeaux) and 228 liters (Burgundy), all of them made from the best French oak Tronçais, Allier and Nevers.
