Salanques is a red wine of DO Priorat, elaborated by the winery Mas Doix. The winery is located in the town of Poboleda (Tarragona), in the northeast of the Priorat.
Salanques is a blend of Garnacha varieties (65%), Carinyena (25%) and Syrah (10%). The grapes come from vineyards planted between 350 and 500m altitude in "Costers de Llicorella", slates typical of the Priorat slate.
The harvest was made by hand and once in the winery the grapes went through a double selection table. Subsequently, fermentation was carried out at a controlled temperature with the system of the submerged hat, that is to say, keeping the solid material of the grapes inside the fermentation mass.
After the winemaking process, the wine was aged for 14 months in new and second-year oak barrels of French oak barrels.
