Red Wine Terroir al Límit Arbossar 2021
Availability: In stock
This single vineyard Spanish red wine originates in a less than 2-hectare plot planted with 90-year-old grapevines, farmed following the principles of biodynamic agriculture. The site is located at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level, near the village of Torroja del Priorat. Soils are composed of black slate and granite.
Harvested by hand, the non-destemmed grapes were gently macerated and fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete diposits.
After that, Terroir al Límit Arbossar 2021 was aged for some months in the diposits and bottled before the following harvest.
It is essential to decant this red wine from Priorat a minimum of 1 hour before you drink it.
The red wine Terroir al Límit Arbossar is medium purple with some bluish tinges.
Though it is still a bit raw, this remarkable old-vines Carignan exudes purity and transparency. Wild cherries and raspberries, with touches of laurel, balsam, thyme, tobacco leaves and menthol. On the background, deep, pulsating, ever-present mineral notions.
Linear and focused, this wine from Terroir al Límit conveys an image of Priorat which is quite different from the usual one. Tension instead of mass, freshness instead of heat, agility instead of weight. Everything is in the right place, and with plenty of room for growth. Great acidity, chiseled tannins and long, memorable finish.
