2019 Terroir Sense Fronteres Vertebra Figuera

£40.00

Terroir Sense Fronteres began as a quest to harness the unique minerality and soul of Montsant and give liquid voice to the restraint and freshness of the complex hills surrounding Priorat through the special Grenache vines that grow there.

This parcel of land sits in the Montsant DO, despite being just a few hundred metres down the road from his land in Priorat.

On his first visit, Dominik was delighted to discover 60-year old Grenache vines planted in a natural amphitheatre of red clay and gypsum. Free from the tight regulations in Priorat, he set about producing modern, ethereal wines of remarkable precision and purity.

Garnatxa Fina is a local grenache with bigger berries and thinner skins that thrives on the plateau 600 meters up the Figuera mountain in pink clay and gypsum-laced vineyards. The old bush vines range from 40-80 years of age and in these cooler, late-ripening sites lend the varietal wine a nearly Pinot-like elegance and purity. The grapes are vinified for up to 10 days in cement tanks, and then aged a further 8 months in cement.

Tasting Note: Notes of smoky dark fruits, luscious blackberries, and crisp pomegranate blend with hints of liquorice and vibrant forest herbs. On the palate, the elegant taste takes a wild journey through sun-drenched fruits, crisp cool nights, and powerful concentrated flavours. The fine tannins sculpt and refine the taut body into a work of art.

Origin: Priorat, Spain

Blend: Garnacha
