Mas Comtal Pomell de Blancs 2019
8 in stock
Mas Comtal Pomell de Blancs 2019 is a unique blend of Chardonnay and Xare-lo from Penedes. Pomell is a Catalan word meaning a bouquet of several different wildflowers. Being as this is a blend and also a very fragrant wine, they wanted to draw on this analogy.
Pomell de Blanc is made from 73% Chardonnay and 27% Xarelo. It sees three months of lees ageing, which adds an abundance of mouthfeel and length. Star bright and clear, light straw lemon in colour. White melon, ripe apple and a touch of lemon on the nose. The palate is super fresh with the same melon and apple flavours with a lick of zest. Fragrant and long length, really well balanced.
The juice comes from a direct press of crushed grapes. The alcoholic fermentation happens at 14 degrees Celsius in stainless steel for ten days. The juice is clarified and stabilised before a slight filtration at bottling.
Mas Comtal is another one of Plonk’s direct wineries. They farm the 40-hectare site completely organically. The microclimate of the estate is Mediterranean with an altitude of 350m above sea level. The winery tasting room actually has a 2000-year-old Roman arch that was used by travellers to stop and refresh. From the vineyard, you can clearly see Montserrat.
We love Mas Comtal, Marta the owner is so in touch with her vines and wines that just always over-deliver in quality.
