TERROIR SENSE FRONTERES BRISAT

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.

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.

The wine is aged in stainless steel vats for a period of 6 months. The lack of oak used in the aging process allows the distinctive Mediterranean characteristics of the Montsant terroir to shine through.

The 2017 Brisat is their generic white from around Capçanes. It is a blend of mostly Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo from early-harvested grapes that fermented in stainless steel with some skin contact and indigenous yeasts. It has a very balsamic nose, very Mediterranean, with lowish alcohol. It’s light and refreshing, with a floral nose and a very tasty finish. It has been kept with some lees in stainless steel and was ready to be bottled (in March 2018). They expect to produce some 5,000 bottles.
