As it turns out, Mr. Huber's Montsant wines are at least as interesting as the ones from Priorat. In fact, one could argue that they show even more finesse.
A varietal Grenache, Vèrtebra is produced from high-altitude vines grown in clayey soils and farmed following minimal-intervention techniques.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were first destemmed and fermented for about a week with indigenous yeasts. Again, in order to reduce human intervention to the minimum, no pump-overs or punch-downs were performed during the process.
After that, Vèrtebra 2018 was aged in concrete tanks for a period of 6 months.
This is a sort of Montsant-meets-Burgundy Spanish red wine.
Aerate this Montsant red wine at least 30 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Vèrtebra is medium cherry with a maroon rim.
The nose of this varietal Grenache feels very pure. Pristine suggestions of wild strawberries, Mediterranean garrigue, liquorice and flowers in bloom. There is nuance and transparency here, as well as a well defined sense of place.
Medium-bodied and very fresh, this wine from Terroir al Límit is delicately earthy and floral, with smooth tannins and a sensational freshness. Again, the wine feels fluid and effortless. Long finish, with remembrances of red berries, Med garrigue and flowers.
