Terroir al Limit is our flagship range, deeply inspired by the very old winemaking traditions of Burgundy. Dominik has fully embraced a biodynamic approach to viticulture, coupled with a gentle, non-intrusive winemaking style that favors whole-bunch fermentation, and concrete or amphora aging as an alternative to oak. Carefully selected plots of Garnacha and Carignan are individually expressed through a collection of site-specific wines with a timeless elegance that has become the hallmark of their style.

TERROIR AL LIMIT TERRA DE CUQUES - PRIORAT WHITE - 2017
- Product Weight
- 1.5 kg
After several years experimenting with different casks, sizes and producers, we now work with a combination of 500-litre barrels and different sizes of Stockinger, thus guaranteeing the most respectful elevage to allow the wine to rest before early bottling. Terra de Cuques is bottled after around 16 months of ageing.
The white 2017 Terra de Cuques Blanc has a marine nose with hints of iodine and salt, slowly showing some white fruit, Mediterranean herbs, fennel and dry stones. Even if 2017 was a warmer year, this blend of 90% Pedro Ximénez and 10% Moscatel kept its alcohol at 13.5%. The skin contact was shortened, and the wine is subtler and finer, with ultra fine tannins and a textured mouthfeel. This is also cleaner, with less lees aromas, and the wine is sharp and more defined. I'd never say this is a warm vintage. They believe the only way to fight climate change is with work in the vineyard, and their vines are balanced and take the heat and extremes better. It just works. – Wine Advocate 93 points
