Product Description

The Dits del Terra is L'Arbossar's (predominantly) south-facing sibling. It is also 100 per cent Cariñena, from three sites that are reportedly more than 80 years old. It was aged in a single 1800 litre French oak cask. The south-facing terroir brings more fleshy oomph to this wine although even here you get the impression that the grapes have been very gently infused with their juice, i.e., there is no sense of obvious extraction. As with all the TaL wines, fermentations are natural and nothing is added save for a smidgeon of sulphur at bottling. There is the influence of whole-bunch/whole-berry fermentation and the harvest dates are chosen carefully to capture as much freshness as possible. There is neither fining nor filtration. The resulting wine is a wonderfully deep, supple, pulpy Cariñena with dark cherry fruit interwoven with all kinds of spices. The finish is long and perfumed, with fine, energetic tannins.

"Inky violet color. An explosively perfumed bouquet displays black raspberry, candied cherry, Indian spices and exotic peat and shiso nuances. Round and lush on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry preserve flavors that show serious depth. Becomes spicier with air, picking up cinnamon and allspice notes and finishing with excellent clarity and mounting tannins."
93+ Points Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar issue 164
