Harvested at dawn to avoid pre-fermentation, the grapes of this Spanish red wine were selected at the vineyard, brought to the cellar and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
After a short period of maceration, Via Terra Negre 2018 was transferred into French and American oak barrels, where it was aged for 6 months.
Finally, this red wine from Terra Alta by the Edetària winery was clarified at a low temperature prior to its bottling.
Drink through 2022.
The red wine Via Terra Negre has an intense, medium-high red-coloured robe.
This Grenache from Terra Alta smells of sweet spices, redcurrants and liquorice. On the background, hints of balsam and some mineral undertones.
This wine by the Edetària winery enters the palate gently and runs through it smoothly. Crunchy red fruit, some spices and a long, fresh finish.
|Our personal opinion||
Pleasant and uncomplicated, Via Terra 2018 by Edetària is a truly excellent value from southern Catalonia.
