Mas Comtal

In the same way that two crops are not equal, Mas Comtal never produces two wines alike. Every year is a different adventure.

This is the magic of the world of author organic wine.

The wine is the result of a combination of factors not modifiable (such as geological, geographical location, composition, structure, depth, land drainage …) as well as a way of working vine variety and consistent throughout the cycle of the plant.

The wisdom of the winemaker is a key to obtaining good wine. Deciding the optimum time of harvest where there is a balance between the acidity and the sugar concentration. The precise time of maceration, fermentation temperature, the type of barrel used, the ageing time, and even the type of cap are decisions taken by the winemaker and give their personal and unique trait to the wine.

  • Pizzicato 2018

    Pizzicato 2018

    After several generations winemaking and, later, producing base wine for cava, brothers Albert and Joan Milà i Mallofré decided, in 1993, to start making quality wines. While Albert was in charge of the cellar and vineyards, Joan used his vast experience as an oenologist and consultant to various Spanish wineries to serve as technical director. The Mas Comtal vineyards, which follow organic production guidelines throughout the entire process, occupy a total of forty hectares. Here are planted the white varieties Pansa (Xarel·lo), Chardonnay and a small plot of Müller-Thurgau, in addition to red varieties Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

     

    Grape: 100% Muscat Hamburg

    Colour: Clean and bright. Blush, very pale blush.

    Nose: Crisp nose, where the notes of tropical fruits, white flowers just asking to be drunk.

    Mouth:  Fresh mouth, fruity, easy to drink.

  • Pomell de Blancs 2019

    Pomell de Blancs 2019

    “Pomell” is a Catalan word meaning bouquet of several different wild flowers. As this is a wine of blended grape varieties, having a floral character, we have wanted to draw this linguistic analogy.

    It is a perfect combination of the uniqueness of Xarel·lo with the sophistication of Chardonnay.

    Each of the varieties that make up this coupage is produced separately as well as being aged on the lees separately in underground fermentation vats in the manner of the great wines of Loire and Chablis. Upon completion of the aging process, the blending process takes place based on the vintage and the character of each of its components.

    Grapes: 73% Chardonnay and 27% Xarel.lo.

  • Negre D’Anyada

    Negre D’Anyada

    Those who know it well speak of it as a wine with a distinctly French character, specifically Bordeaux. This is a coupage of the three quintessential Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It is a wine with brief oak aging (3 months in French oak barrels) and a long repose and aging period in the bottle.

  • Mas Comtal Brut 2015 Reserva

    Mas Comtal Brut 2015 Reserva

    A delightful dry Classic Penedes sparkling wine.  What is Classic Penedes I hear you ask, well they make this wine using the Methode Champagnoise, therefore, if you like Champagne, this is the drink for you.  It is produced by Mas Comtal from Penedes using 70% Xarel’lo and 30% Chardonnay grapes.

     

    Colour: Pale straw yellow with golden and bright reflections. Very fine and persistent bubbles.

    Nose: Notes of fresh fruit and dried herbs on the nose.

    Taste: Fresh, fruity and good acidity on the palate.

     

    If you really want to fancy this up, maybe mix it with one of these two gin liqueurs:

    Boe Peach and Hibiscus

    Boe Bramble

  • Antistiana Incrocio Manzoni

    Antistiana Incrocio Manzoni

    This is the fourth vintage of Incrocio Manzoni, a little known variety in our country, which Joan Milà (1943-2010) “discovered” and fell in love with on one of his trips to Italy. It is a variety called Manzoni Bianco or Incrocio Manzoni originally from the province of Treviso. In fact, it is a cross between Riesling Renano and Pinot Blanc conducted by Professor Luigi Manzoni. It was one of the most interesting outcomes after a series of various tests carried out in the mid-twentieth century with the aim of identifying new grape varieties that could complement those already existing in the Veneto region.

    This variety stands out for the complexity provided by the PINOT BLANC and the aromatic strength of the RIESLING. Well-managed, it results in complex, aromatic wines with great aging potential. It has to be tried!

  • Antistiana Xarel.lo 2017

    Antistiana Xarel.lo 2017

    First production of 100% Xarel·lo varietal wine.

    At Mas Comtal, up to the early 60s, Xarel·lo predominated. It coexisted with some Sumoll although, due to its low concentration of colouring agents in the skin, it was made into white wine. At that time, wine was sold in bulk. It was in the early 60s, with the increase in demand for white grapes to produce the base wine for cava, that the Sumoll and much of the Xarel·lo began to be replaced by Parellada and Macabeu. From 1966 to 1993, all grapes were sold to cava producers. We can therefore say that from 1960 to 1982, the vineyard was geared towards producing grapes for cava base wine: Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada.

    In the early 80s, Albert Milà, with the help and unconditional support of his brother winemaker Joan Milà (1943-2010), a new era was entered upon with the aim of producing quality wines, transforming the family business by completing the production cycle:from planting the vines, their cultivation, making quality wine from the grapes and, once bottled, its marketing. This process led to the reorientation of the winemaking process by substituting Macabeu and Parellada for other varieties aimed at producing quality still wines and, subsequently, to implementing organic production in all 40 hectares of vineyard. Only the Xarel·lo grapevines have been preserved; today, all aged between 50 and 80 years old. The grapes of those oldest vines are the ones that have gone into producing these first 2,848 bottles of 75 cl.

  • Antistiana Cabernet Franc

    Antistiana Cabernet Franc

    ANTISTIANA was an ancient Roman town and villa of uncertain location off the Via Augusta on the road running from Arles to Tarragona and on to Cartagena. It is assumed that Antistiana was located in the triangle between VILAFRANCA DEL PENEDÉS, OLÈRDOLA and LA RÀPITA near SANTA MARGARIDA I ELS MONJOS. The Roman general GAIUS ANTISTIUS VETUS was very likely the reason for the name of the Roman settlement. The general also participated in the Cantabrian Wars.
