Product Description
Details

A few years ago, the prestigious winemaker Dominik Huber, owner of world-class Priorat winery Terroir al Limit, decided to expand his operations to the neighbouring DO Montsant after realizing the huge potential of the region. That was the origin of Terroir Sense Fronteres, the winery beyond Terroir Sense Fronteres Negre.

A blend of 75% Carignan and 25% Grenache, this Spanish red wine is produced, as all of Mr. Huber's wines, in a Burgundian style.

The grapes were picked up by hand and transported to the cellar in little boxes. Once there, they were destemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Human intervention during the process was minimal, with no punch-overs or pump-downs whatsoever. Alcoholic fermentation lasted about 8 days. Then, Terroir Sense Fronteres Negre 2018 was aged for 6 months in the tanks before being bottled.

We suggest that you aerate this red wine from Montsant 30 minutes before drinking.

Nose

Remarkably pure, this blend of Carignan and Grenache is exhilarating. Pristine aromas of red fruit and Mediterranean herbs, with a touch of licorice. This Crianza red wine from Montsant also suggests some mineral and floral remembrances.

Palate

Juicy, fresh and supple, this wine of Terroir al Límit showcases the virtues of a non-interventionist winemaking philosophy. Lifted and spacious, it is immensely pleasant and drinkable, and this while remaining interesting. Fruit, herbs and flowers combine in the nicest way. This Montsant red wine has a medium, delicious finish.

Fruit-driven and really engaging, Terroir Sense Fronteres Negre 2018 delivers a great drinking pleasure.
