Mas Martinet is well know in producing amazing wine from Priorat and their flagship wine is an amazing representation of some of Spain's finest red wines.

"The spellbinding 2009 Clos Martinet is a blend of 65% Garnacha (including some Garnacha Peluda), 18% Carinena, 11% Syrah and the rest a mixture of Cabernet and Merlot... The palate is medium-bodied with firmer, more masculine tannins compared to the Cami Pesseroles. There is a sublime symmetry at play here, wonderful minerality with subtle notes of liquorice, chalk, citrus peel and a touch of oyster shell. It has brilliant delineation and elegance towards the finish, which is long and sensual. Without question, this is one of the finest Priorat 2009s that I encountered. . and all without a drop of oak."
