TERROIR SENSE FRONTERES NEGRE

The red wines of Terroir Sense Fronteres are vinified in similar ways, following the ancient traditions of the Burgundy region. After harvest, the grapes are not destemmed, but transferred into our vats in whole clusters. When the vats are full, we cover them and allow a natural fermentation to take place, with only the native yeasts naturally found on the fruit. The winemaking process occurs without any mechanical interactions, like pigeage or remontage, allowing for a slower, gentler fermentation that takes around 7-8 days.

  • REVIEW
After fermentation is complete, the wines are aged in stainless steel vats for a period of 6 months. The lack of oak used in the aging process results in a light, purely fruit-driven wine that expresses the Grenache varietal and the fruit’s unique terroir of origin.

The generic red 2017 Negre is a blend of Garnacha and Cariñena from different vineyards around Capçanes. It fermented with full clusters in stainless steel, where it was kept until bottling. It’s a fruit-driven, light, refreshing Mediterranean blend with notes of licorice and wild berries. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and a soft, caressing texture. I tasted the wine that was going to be bottled (in March 2018). They expect to fill some 6,000 bottles.
