The 2018 Terrers is a different blend than in the past, and this year its composed of 65% Xarel.lo, higher and higher because of climate change, 18% Macabeo and 17% Parellada from a rainy year, more relaxed than the previous 2017 and 2016. Yields are around 7,000 kilos (when the average was 5,600), so good yields and fresh wines, with 11.5% alcohol and a pH of 3.12. It matured in bottle for some three years. It's bone dry, very long and tasty and showcases the house style, elegant and nuanced wines, here with tension and ripeness with fine bubbles but with the wine clearly more important than the bubbles (they use less sugar in the tirage for the second fermentation to have less bubbles). 260,000 bottles produced in a generous vintage. Impressive
