Espana Vino, Terra personas by David Moore

The magazine España Vino is made by the rewarded  wine writer David Moore.
A selected number of the finest Spanish bodegas are in it, Terra Personas also!

He have tasted the wines accordingly:

Terra Personas

A small range of bright, forward and immediately approachable wines is produced here. There is a
rosado as well as the nutty, lightly aromatic white and two reds. The bodega is owned by the Dutch
Persoon family and there has been winegrowing input from Scottish consultant Norrel Robertson
MW, who is based in Cataluña. The vineyard consists of 10 ha which are protected by the Montsant
mountains and planted at around 300 metres altitude. The Blanco is part tank fermented in stainless
steel at cool temperatures, its Garnacha Blanca component in small oak. Of the two reds the Terra
Vermella is more approachable and fruit forward. The Terra Negra is more complex, the influence of
around 80% of old Cariñena in the blend is immediately apparent on tasting.

Recommended Reds:
Montsant Terra Negra (Cariñena, Garnacha, Syrah) 86-88/ C
Montsant Terra Vermella (Carinena, Garnacha, Syrah) 85-87/ B

Recommended Whites:

Montsant Terra Blanca (Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo) 85-87/ B
