Clos Fontà

Description

Old vines, the most precise representation of Mas d’en Gil terroir. Clos Fontà concentrates black fruit and minerality in a complex wine. It is the fruit of observation, the passing of time and the will to feel, meditate and recount. It epitomises this unque landscape.

Origins:

This wine is made from old vines located in different valleys around the Mas d’en Gil estate. Its name comes from the old name of the estate: Mas d’en Fontà, due to a spring which is located close to the Masia or farmhouse. In the 1980s the grape growing families who arrived to make wine in Priorat decided to use the term “clos” followed by the name of the estate or vineyard plot to name their wines made from old vineyards. In our case, we decided to call our wine Clos Fontà.
