Overview

Salanques is a steep, three hectare vineyard located near the village of Poboleda where Mas Doix farms 70-90 year old vines of Garnatxa and Carinyena at a elevation between 350 and 450 meters above sea level. These old vines have been supplemented with a small amount of Syrah which was planted in 2000. Each variety is harvested separately and by hand and when they grapes arrive at the cellar they are destemmed and carefully sorted. The wine is aged in French oak for 14 months.
