Description

Terroir Sense Fronteres Brisat 2019

Terroir Sense Fronteres Brisat is a beautiful blend of 75% Grenache blanc and 25% Macabeo. The nose is marked with a dried herbal elegance, fennel, orange peel and white flower aromas, and a pervasive smoky minerality. A scintillating texture on the palate intertwines with lithe, juicy flavors and piercing acidity before leading into a long, mouthwatering saline finish. An incredible homage to the cool Montsant slopes with enough body, structure, freshness to honor any Mediterranean fare.

Terroir Sense Fronteres began as a quest to harness the unique minerality and soul of Montsant and give liquid voice to the restraint and freshness of these clay and sand hills surrounding Priorat. Brisat is a dry, white blend of grenache blanc (75 %) and macabeo (25 %) whose name means ‘skin-fermented’ in Catalan. And indeed half of the grapes are vinified for 5 - 7 days on the skins, while the other half are directly pressed in whole bunches with wild yeast in Inox tanks. Both batches then undergo 6 - 8 months of aging, also in Inox. With low alcohol levels and a dedication to organic farming, this is the rare entry-level white that speaks of and for the region, a message in a bottle that rewards those who choose to listen.
