Highlights: Frisach L’Abrunet Tinto 2018 Terra Alta, Spain

Frisach L’Abrunet De Frisach Tinto 2018 Terra Alta, Spain
13.5% alcohol. This is a blend of Grenache and Carignan (here: Garnatxa and Samsó), organically farmed, and fermented and aged in concrete. It’s a lighter-coloured red with inviting aromas of red cherries, some sweet strawberries and a trace of green herbiness. But it’s the palate that stands out: it has a real sweetness to the fruit, and a seamless quality, with very low tannin extraction and a hint of pepper and cinnamon in the background. Such elegance and drinkability. This is more infusion than extraction: I wouldn’t be surprised if very little fermentation actually took place on the skins. 93/100
