Terroir Sense Fronteres Guix Vermell

Guix Vermell is the wine that started it all. Els Montalts is a tiny 4-hectare vineyard that sits at a dizzying 800 m of elevation. Located only a few hundred meters away from Les Manyes, and the first vineyard as one crosses from Priorat into Montsant, the vineyard’s name features the local terms for its red clay and gypsum soils. The 45-year-old Garnacha vines that thrive there show an unparalleled beauty and elegant finesse. Vinification and aging occur in Italian terracotta amphoras, maintaining a consistent and natural connection with the clay from vine to bottle. Amphora maceration lasts 7 - 8 days, lending subtle oxidative touches to the wine, along with a signature minerality. After fermentation, the wines are further aged in the same amphorae for up to 6 months to ultimately reveal an unparalleled expression of the Montsant terroir.
