The village red, 2013 Torroja Vi de Vila, very much reflects the conditions of the wet and late growing season in this blend of Garnacha and Carinena sourced from a diversity of vineyards in the village of Torroja. It is a forward, fruit-driven effort with notes reminiscent of carbonic maceration since like all the reds here it undergoes semi-carbonic maceration. Fermentation was in oak vats with full clusters and indigenous yeasts and the elevage lasted some 18 moths in oak foudres crafted in Austria. With time and air it turns more serious opening up lactic hints with tons of red berries and some licorice. The medium-bodied palate has fine, earthy tannins blending a more serious, elegant character with some rusticity. As I find with all the wines from Terroir al Limit, it's not about the grapes, it's about the place. Still, the Garnacha seems to provide the bright red fruit and the Carinena the earthy rusticity. It gets better and better in the glass. 15,000 bottles produced.
