Terroir Al Limit Arbossar 2009 – grazile Rustikalität

018

Den Weinen von Dominik Huber eilt ein Ruf wie Donnerhall voraus. Und auch was ich bisher schluckweise auf verschiedenen Messen vom Weingut Terroir al Limit probieren durfte, konnte sich sehen lassen. Und so war es vor einiger Zeit schwer nein zu sagen, als ein Online-Weinhändler den 2009 Arbossar zum Aktionspreis feil bat.  Read the rest of this entry »

2 Priorat Wines

IMG_2745

2005 Finca La Planeta by Cellers Pasanau. Made of 80% Cabernet and 20 % Garnacha, aged one year in new French oak barrels.
Very sexy nose: intense and voluptuous of sweet fruit, forest berries, herbs and some leather. The only little downer comes from a slight glue smell here. On the palate, very silky texture but Read the rest of this entry »

2005 Idus de Vall Llach, Priorat

“Idus” is the name of the second wine of Celler Vall Lach which is located in Porrera within the Priorato region. It is a Cuvée of mainly Carinena and Garnacha grapes, but also includes varieties such as Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet. Colour is dark and brilliant with great intensity. Big tears on the inside of the glass instantly remind that the label announced 15,5 % alc. Intense nose of cherries and Vanilla, but also some herbs and tar; unfortunately also a slight alcoholic tone is puncturing. After 3 hours of decanting, tannins are feeling soft on the palate. Fruit is very intense and clear of cherries, reminding a little of cherry-jam, but on the other hand it is by far not as jammy as some other modern Spanish wines. On the mid-palate a little bitter-tone is also noticeable and on the back end of the palate the alcoholic afterburner is quite strong. All in all this is not something I love really, but not truly a bad wine either, I just don’t like that strong alcohol touch.(btw I already had wines with 16% which didn’t feel alcoholic at all). Then again this could be much better with the right food match 87-89
