Mas d'en Gil "Nus" 2013

  • Living the sweet life here - this is an incredibly rare dessert wine from Mas d’en Gil in Priorat made of Garnatxa Negra. Nus is aimed at recovering the old Priorat tradition of making sweet red from grapes sourced from five different vineyards on the estate. Its name alludes to the fusion or “link” (“Nus”) between these five wines. The wine was made for the first time in 1999 after eight years of trials until the final blend was reached. Aged for 18 months in 60 Litre barrels and bottle aged for 12 months. It compliments red fruit such as strawberries, as well as chocolate with a hint of spice like ginger or red pepper. Another option is with blue cheese such as Cabrales, Stilton or Fourme d’Ambert.
