TERROIR SENSE FRONTERES BRISAT

Brisat is a blend of 75% Grenache Blanc and 25% Macabeo, harvested from vines growing in clay and sandy soils in the valleys of the DO Montsant. In a typically Burgundian style, the grapes are fermented in whole clusters, without first being destemmed and using exclusively native yeasts that appear naturally on the fruit. They are then left to macerate on skins for two weeks, resulting in something similar to an orange wine, with plenty color, tannin and character.

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.
