The 2018 Negre is a blend of organic Garnacha and 25% Cariñena from different vineyards around the village of Capçanes, near the winery. Serra de Montsant, Catalunya. It definitely feels fresher and more ethereal than the 2017 and is very much in line with the wines I tasted from Priorat; it has great purity and elegance and was bottled without any contact with oak. There are cherries, spices and herbs and a touch of licorice, and the palate is medium-bodied, with very fine tannins. Delicious. The wine was fermented whole cluster with ambient yeast, saw 10 days of skin contact, and was briefly matured in steel tanks for six months. 15,000 bottles produced.
Grenache-focused project aimed at maximizing the Montsant’s potential for fresh, elegant, lower-alcohol Mediterranean wines.
All vineyards are farmed organically (certified or practicing) on a variety of calcareous and clay terroirs in the valleys and mountains of DO Montsant; grapes are fermented whole cluster with native yeasts, and raised in stainless steel, concrete, or amphora (no oak).
Terroir Sense Fronteres is the new Montsant project from Dominik Huber, founder of trailblazing Priorat winery Terroir Al Límit.
