Mas Gran

Celler en Porrera
Foundation year 1999
Vineyard 7,5 hectares
Annual production 12.000 l.
Ageing barriques 83
All the grapes used to make this wine come from our properties:
"Mas d'en Caçador": Natural slope (costero) of llicorella slate with an extension of 2.5 hectares. Situated 500 m above sea level, here grapes of the garnacha and cariñena varieties are grown. These are old vineyards, with an age between 60 and 90 years. Output is in the range of 300-500 g of grapes per vine stock.
"Mas d'en Ferran": Costero of llicorella slate, with terraces measuring 3 metres in width. It has an extension of 5 hectares. It was planted with the varieties garnacha, cabernet, merlot, and syrah in 1996. The output here ranges from 1.5 to 2 kg per stock. 
The llicorella slate, combined with the privileged micro-climate, the scant yield of the stocks, the almost complete absence of phytosanitary treatments, the difficulty of working the land because of the steepness of the terrain, the small size of the winery, a meticulous attention to quality, and the strict selection process of the grapes before they enter the processing facilities, give rise to the exceptionally exquisite character of our wines.

Roquers de Porrera 2010
Aged 14 months in brand new fine grained french allier oak barriques
40 % garnacha, 40% cariñena, 20% cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah. 
Annual producción 6.000 bottles. 14,5 % vol.
Intense bigarreau cherry colour marked by deep violet tones around the rim, as a result of its youth.
Very complex and intense aroma. Initially it evokes ripe fruits, surrounded by clear touches of vanilla and cacao. After stirring it a bit, it develops slowly towards flowery notes (violet) and plum jam. All of this combines with the clear mineral and balsamic notes, characteristic of slate soils.
Ample, fatty and oily at its attack. Then it becomes tannic but pleasant. Its tannins are powerful, but also mature, so its passage in mouth is full, velvety and intense. Its good acidity proves a magnificent balance. Long and persistent, it leaves a clear remembrance of plum liqueur. This vine will be improving in the bottle for the coming 10 years.
