Terroir Sense Fronteres Guix Vermell Negre is a clay-aged red wine made by Terroir Sense Fronteres with the Garnacha Tinta variety in the D.O. Montsant (Catalonia).
A lover of Priorat, Dominik Huber has worked to recover a winemaking style where the grape, the terroir and the climate are the real protagonists. This is a return to the old way of doing things, where Huber bought a vineyard by chance during his purchase of a plot in the neighbouring D.O. Montsant, realising that here he could make his wines without as many restrictions and achieve more freshness and lightness. This is how his four Terroir Sense Fronteres wines are made.
Terroir Sense Fronteres Guix Vermell Negre comes from a spectacular natural amphitheatre of 4 hectares where the vines range in age between 40 and 75 years old and are planted on red clay soils with layers of gypsum at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level. They are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture and the yield is limited to 2,500 kg/ha.
In the winery, the Terroir Sense Fronteres Guix Vermell Negre grapes are left whole without destemming. Fermentation takes place spontaneously with native yeasts in terracotta jars. Maceration lasts between 7 and 8 days and finally the wine ages in these clay jars for about 6 months.
Inspired by gypsum (guix) and red clay (vermell) soils, the Terroir Sense Fronteres Guix Vermell Negre wine is vinified following the ancient winemaking traditions of Burgundy to capture the maximum expression of the terroir. A fresh, smooth wine with powerful elegance.
