Terroir Històric Negre
Dominik freely admits that the Negre from Terroir Històric will always be a Garnatxa-dominated blend with Carinyena playing a secondary role. Garnatxa makes for a friendlier young wine, and that is really the goal Dominik has with this cuvée. With a healthy dose of Garnatxa grown high in the Montsant and on clay-limestone soils, the profile of the Negre is lifted and enticing, floral and decidedly in the red-fruit flavor spectrum. The remainder of the fruit comes from Garnatxa and Carinyena grown on schist which provides freshness and minerality. Fermented whole cluster and with indigenous yeasts, the Negre is fermented then aged for six months in a 5000L concrete tank.
