Vertebra 2017 Montsant

This is a fantastic Garnacha (Grenache) by Terroir sense Fronteres (terroir with no limits).  The grapes are from an area called Montsant which lies like a horseshoe around Priorat. The grapes come from 40-80 year old plots around the village of LaFiguera at around 750 above sea level. The terroir is predominately chalk on steep terraces. The wine has fermented and stored on cement tanks before being bottled. 2017 is the first vintage made and only 4000 btls were produced. The colour is pale ruby. Delicious nose of fresh raspberry, strawberry, flowers and some liquerice. Fresh and light taste with a perfect balance and soft tannins. Very elegant with ripe red fruit and a long aftertaste. Just super delicious. Vertebra 2017 Terroir sense Fronteres Montsant, Spain 370 NOK or 25€ Lys rød farge. Særdeles innsmigrende og lett aromatisk nese av friske bringebær jordbær, blomster, urter og lakris. Svært frisk i munnen med flott frukt, finslepne tanniner og flott tekstur. Vel
