2016 Cellar Frisach Terra Alta "L'Abrunet" Negre, 750ml

Availability: In stock (7)

An overachieving Spanish table wine that pairs fruit, acidity and tannin. Organically grown grapes, this is a blend of 60% Garnacha and 40% Cariñena, the local name for Carginan. Local soils are composed of petrified sand dunes and iron-rich calcareous clay. Co-fermented with wild yeasts in subterranean cement tanks built by the winemaker's grandparents and fished out one bucket at a time. Very minimally filtered and tiny doses of sulfites. 

From the mouth of the importer (Trumpet Wine):

"Francesc Ferre’s family has been farming grapes organically in Corbera d’Ebre for over 200 years, but only just began making wine in 2009 with then 21 year-old Francesc at the helm, fresh out of school. It looks as if a giant pulled a ripcord from the earth to create the mountains on either side of their mediterranean valley, flanked by a forest to the east and a modern phalanx of windmills on its blustery western ridge. Corbera’s combination of hot, dry days in the Mediterranean sun, evening marinada onshore wind, and cool nights at Corbera’s high elevation allows grapes to maintain their acidity in otherwise arid conditions and makes it an ideal place to grow fresh, vivacious garnatxa.
