Product Description
Details

Based in the northern Catalan region of L'Empordà, the Terra Remota winery was started by Marc & Emma Bournezeau in 1999. The delightful Terra Remota Camino is probably their best known wine.

A blend of 45% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, this Spanish red wine is made from estate-owned, organically grown vineyards.

First the grapes were selected both in the vineyard and in the cellar. After that, they were destemmed, macerated for a long time, and fermented in one third stainless steel tanks, one third wooden vats and one third oak barrels.

Finally, Terra Remota Camino 2018 was aged for 12 months in those containers.

Aerate this Empordà red wine 30 minutes before drinking.

25,000 bottles produced.

Appearance

The red wine Terra Remota Camino is pale purple with a reddish rim.

Nose

This blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon has an enticing and well defined nose. Rich aromas of wild berries, plum preserve, wet earth, cinnamon, menthol, liquorice and coffee, nuanced by some mineral remembrances.

Palate

Straightforward and well-rounded, with a fresh acidity and a smooth texture. This wine from bodega Terra Remota suggests flavours of vanilla, clove, coffee, blackberry jam, Mediterranean garrigue, vegetables and some floral remembrances. Deep, long finish.

Our personal opinion

Well-crafted and very expressive, Terra Remota Camino 2018 is a little-known delicacy from northern Catalonia.

A carefully crafted wine, not too intellectual though. It has life and élan, with a touch of gallic restraint.

Magnificent

Here the French touch -the winery is own by a Frenchman- transforms the earthy Empordà terroir into a delicate expression. Superbly balanced, with plenty of finesse.
