The Mas Martinet Cami Pesseroles wine, originating from Spain’s prestigious Priorat region, is truly a speciality. This full-bodied red blend artfully combines Grenache and Carignan grapes, presenting an incredible depth of flavour. Aged in French oak barrels, it imparts a harmonious balance of dark fruit and spice notes with underlying earthiness. Upon pouring, it captivates the senses with its rich ruby hue and complex, enchanting aroma. The well-structured tannins lend elegance on the palate and sustain a notably long finish. This wine exhibits a certain sophistication that makes it suitable for special occasions or paired with hearty meals.
A wonderfully complex dark fruited nose with hints of bitter chocolate, wild herbs, earth and incense leads in to a full bodied, succulent palate that is hard to describe. A certain tannic presence and fine, trembling acidity holds together and frames a vibrant, authentic style of wine that although powerful has a real sense of cohesion and balance. All the elements are in place for a long life ahead and yet there is something irresistible about it now

Their most sought-after wines include the Mas Martinet Menut - a blend of Garnacha, Carinena and Syrah; and the Mas Martinet Clos Martinet - a striking blend of Grenache, Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon, grown from the estate’s oldest vines. These expressions are renowned worldwide for their balance, elegance and complexity.
A visit to Mas Martinet is a journey into the heart of Catalan winemaking. Here, visitors can embark on a guided tour of the vineyard, indulge in a tailored wine tasting experience, or even participate in the harvesting process during vintage. However, it's the unbeatable view from the hilltop vineyard, overlooking the quaint villages of the Priorat region, that truly captivates the attention of those who venture here.
In conclusion, a bottle from Mas Martinet doesn’t simply provide a taste of their wine, it offers a taste of the land, the history and the passion of the people who nurture the vineyards every day.
