Terroir al Limit Priorat Historic Blanco 2016
|Region||Spain, Catalonia, Priorato|
|Brand||Terroir al Limit|
The 2016 Terroir Históric Blanc is a blend of 75% Garnacha Blanca and 25% Macabeo aged in concrete vats for some six months. They use organically grown grapes that come from their own vineyards and from other growers. It has light skin contact, as it's the traditional "brisat" style, which gives the wine structuring tannins and some herbaceous and spicy notes (they even use stems) that go very well with food and results in slightly lower alcohol. The 2016 vintage is fresher than the initial 2015, which is when they started this project with the idea to deliver affordable wines that have a traditional profile, wines from the Mediterranean but being careful with alcohol. This has 13% alcohol, which is the minimum allowed by the appellation of origin. It's tasty and soft, a tad fresher than the 2015. 6,000 bottles were filled in March 2017.
