"Vi de Coster, the equivalent of 1er Cru wine. Arbossar is a steep, 1.6-hectare vineyard of 100-plus-year-old Cariñena (Carignan) planted on schist and granite soils. It’s close to the village of Torroja where the Terroir al Límit cellars are based. Against conventional wisdom, Arbossar was planted on the cooler, north-facing slopes of Torroja. It was this unusual site, purchased in 2005, that informed much of Huber’s early experience with the terroir of Priorat. As Luis Gutiérrez explains, it’s always a “fresher and more floral style” than the corresponding Dits del Terra (from the south-facing slopes) and picked earlier. Both wines are made in a similar fashion: 100% whole-bunch vinification with wild yeasts and 16 months élevage, exclusively in concrete."
"An old-vine carignan that is naturally concentrated in flavors, but not in form. Some cement and crushed-stone character to the smoked blue fruit, wild berries, flowers and grilled herbs. Medium-to full-bodied palate with fresh fruit and a supple texture. Very fresh, delicate and composed for a carignan."
