2019 Terroir Sense Fronteres Montsant Brisat

Montsant, Spain

Florals, fennel seed and chalk with a touch of skins that add a powdery grip. This humble Montsant Grenache blanc is a game changer for Spanish whites.




About The Wine

There is something so wonderfully unique about Mediterranean whites, the combination of ripe fruit and wild, bitter herbs gets us every time.

This Grenache Blanc and Carignan blend from the dizzying heights of the Montsant hills is a great example. Jasmine, fennel and fresh basil overlay a palate of white peach and citrus. There is grip and edge from some time on skins and the palate is long and lithe. Complex, intriguing and fresh, another joyous discovery.

About Terroir Sense Fronteres

Dominik Huber has changed the face of Priorat and now he is on a mission to do the same for Montsant. At 800m elevation and with water retaining clay soils Montsant is capable of producing Garnacha (both colours) and Carinena of incredible freshness and finesse and, unlike Priorat, the DO permits a lower ABV so that freshness can be captured in all its glory.

Leading the charge at Terroir Sense Fronteres is Terroir al Limit’s talented Vigneron Tatjana Peceric and her natural flair for the region is apparent. All the wines are whole bunch fermented in concrete, amphorae and stainless steel and infusion over extraction is the norm. Never have the depths of Spain had more nerve, tension, and fluidity, these an extremely satisfying set of wines to explore.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The nose is marked with a dried herbal elegance, fennel, orange peel and white flower aromas, and a pervasive smoky minerality. A scintillating texture on the palate intertwines with lithe, juicy flavors and piercing acidity before leading into a long, mouthwatering saline finish. An incredible homage to the cool Montsant slopes with enough body, structure, freshness to honor any Mediterranean fare.

Critic Reviews

Wine Advocate

"The white 2018 Brisat named after skin contact in Catalan, even if the time the wine macerated with the skins has been shortened and the wine has less color and a fresher personality, with structure but with a crisp palate. In Montsant, they are able to harvest earlier than in Priorat (it's the same team as Terroir al Limit, of course), and the wine has a lively palate with a chalky texture and supple flavors. This is only 12% alcohol and has a nose of flowers and fennel and something stony. There are some 7,000 bottles of this."- Luis Gutiérrez (The Wine Advocate)


"This is a soft and round-textured white with sliced-apple and cooked-pear character. Medium to full body. Lots of honeysuckle and lemon character. Garnacha blanca and macabeo. Drink now."-

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
