L’Arbossar | Terroir al Limít

L’Arbossar is a steep, north-facing vineyard near the village of Torroja, which Dominik spotted while riding his motorbike on the twisting mountain roads one day. Despite the conventional wisdom against northern exposure and Carinyena, he could sense that this was a unique site. The resulting wine is finely structured and expressive – pure raspberry and cherry overlay warm herbal notes.
