Product Description
Details

Produced by Terroir al LímitTerroir al Límit Les Manyes is the only varietal Grenache wine of this prestigious winery from the DOQ Priorat. This Spanish red wine is made form a scarce hectare of vines around 55 years of age, planted in soils composed of clay, quartz and limestone, on a steep slope at an altitude around 700 metres above sea level.

As for the farming operations, the winery applies biodynamic techniques and a minimal intervention approach.

After a meticulous harvest, the undestemmed grapes underwent a very light maceration, aimed at infusing them with gentle aromas, rather than extracting tannin or solid components. After completing alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts in vats, the malolactic fermentation of this red wine from Priorat took place in concrete eggs.

After that, Terroir al Límit Les Manyes 2018 was aged for 15 months in those recipients. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Decant at least 2 hours before drinking.

Very limited production.

This vintage received a 99-point Parker score.

Appearance

The red wine Terroir al Límit Les Manyes is bright cherry with a garnet rim.

Nose

It is difficult to find words which aptly describe this Grenache from Priorat. The purity, the definition and the personality of it are simply out of this world. Marvelous fruit over a carpet of forest floor, aromatic herbs, flowers and a salty hint. As it unfurls, the wine keeps suggesting new and ever more complex aromatic nuances. Simply unique.

Palate

Medium to full-bodied, this wine from Terroir al Límit carries all the deliciousness of Grenache, but none of its usual weight. Graceful and bursting with life, with a salty minerality, a lean body and a never-ending finish. Spellbiding intrincacy, dreamy texture and inexhaustible detail.

Our personal opinion

Perfection is something we very rarely encounter -if ever. Like the 2016 vintage, Terroir al Límit Les Manyes 2018 will probably become the stuff of legend.

One of the best three wines of my life - this from somebody who knows Ch. Rayas, a lot of Burgundy and virtually all great Bordeaux reds.
