Clos Mogador Nelin 2013

You don’t often think Clos Mogador and white wine. This is mostly made up of the grape variety garnacha blanca with macabeau and escanyavelles, and allegedly (at least in past) the rest a melange of viognier, marsanne, roussanne and pedro ximenez. Priorat white aiming for an elevated standing. The wine is raised in stainless, old barrels and ceramic egg, resting on lees for a period of nine months or so. It’s one of those wines that made me double take, at first feeling a touch broad, but with air and time in glass, revealed a stunning personality of bronzed coloured, richness and open weave, powerful, slightly sherrified feel with a good weave of phenolic structrue. Natural fermentation and some skin fermentation also is applied in winemaking. Fascinating, wonderful wine.
