Terra de Cuques is a richly textured wine, which Terroir al Limit produce in a remarkably similar way to their reds. The result is a wine layered with bright citrus, ripe apricot and delicate white flowers. Incredibly expressive, and capable of ageing wonderfully too.
The winemaking process involves taking whole clusters and macerating them on skins for two weeks, before pressing them into a concrete tank where they finish their fermentation. This method infuses the wine with the amazing flavour locked in the skins, whilst keeping the soft texture.
Terroir al Limit was founded in 2001, by acclaimed South African winemaker Eben Sadie and the talented German Dominik Huber. The duo shared a strong belief that Priorat's dramatic terroir had the potential to yield exceptional grapes and singular wines. Together they rented a small plot of old vine Garnacha and Carignan and went to work crafting wines that would go on to define the modern face of Priorat. Eben moved back to South Africa in 2012, and from there Dominik took over the reins and continued to drive the project to great heights. Today, Terroir al Limit crafts textured whites and sensational reds that Luis Gutierrez (robertparker.com) has even likened to Rhone's iconic Chateau Rayas. Yet despite this comparison, to us, these wines are peerless. They are entirely unique to the terroir of Priorat, offering a snapshot into this incredible Spanish region and the potential of its vines.
