The power of a terroir

Posted By: Merkatu Interactiva In: Ultimas Noticias On: Comment: 0 Hit: 237

Sometimes when we taste a wine we are struck by its personality, its unique character, and this leads us, almost by magic, to a specific place: the vineyard which it comes from. It is then when we say that we are facing a singular wine, a terroir wine.

As a general definition we can translate the terroir as "that well delimited and homogeneous geographic extension that has some striking particularity for its agricultural production". That is, a place where geography, geology and climate play a fundamental role when it comes to marking character. But all this could not be possible without the intervention of man.

When it comes to creating a wine of this kind, a true reflection of the vineyard where it comes from, the vinegrower and then the winemaker have a difficult task: to transfer all that complexity and personality that marks the land to a wine . Therefore it is essential to know what you want to get from that vineyard and how you want to tell.
