Terroir Al Limit Soc. Lda. Terra de Cuques, Priorat DOCa, Spain, 2014
Overview of the Winery
"Terroir al Límit fits into a distinctly Mediterranean context. Their ancient culture and terroir are consequences of the Mediterranean climate. Their wines are produced with gastronomy in mind. They shine brightest when enjoyed with family and friends, as part of the lifestyle of southern Europe. To pair with a healthy Mediterranean diet – known for dishes that are pure and authentic in flavor – their wines must be light and transparent. Nothing should mask the true character of the soils: not the oak, not the extraction, not the over-ripeness of the grapes. Only pure, mineral-rich fruit is used."
Grape / Blend
90% Pedro Ximenez
10% Muscat de Alexandria
Pedro Ximenez from El Molar Muscat from Porrera, Spain
The Pedro Ximenez (PX) is pressed in our old vertical basket press; we crush the grapes by walking gently around on them for one hour in the press, slowly filling it up with the non-destemmed grapes. Then we press them directly. Throughout the process we have a combination of extraction, oxidation and maceration that gives our whites their very specific expression.
