Terroir al Limit Dits del Terra 2009 (4.6/5)


It appears medium ruby with good tears. On the nose it's clean offering, with medium intensity, interesting notes of wild fennel, dried hay, cherries and prunes, thyme, earth and crushed rocks, graphite-like minerality. It's very burgundian in style and that's very unusual for Priorat. However, it's showing a great sense of place and wonderfully expresses its own terroir. Rarely seen elsewhere Carignan reaching these levels of excellence.

 On the palate is dry, with quite high acidity, medium tannins, med+ alcohol, medium+ body with good concentration of crunchy red fruits and mineral notes. Med+ finish. Very pure and focused.

Outstanding quality, Premium price, Drink Now but will keep evolving for another 5-10 years. 100% Carinena, Torroja del Priorat,  Priorat, Spain.
