Terroir al Limit Pedra de Guix Priorat 2017

Terroir al Limit Pedra de Guix Priorat 2017

Vi de Coster, the equivalent of 1er Cru wine. As we have said before, this is one of the most mineral sculpted whites we know--it tastes as if the wine was tapped directly from pure rock--which of course it was. Forget about how rare white Priorat is, Pedra de Guix gives the great whites of the world a run for their money.

This is a blend of three varieties from three villages: Poboleda (on schist) provides the Garnatxa Blanca; Torroja (on alluvial soils) the Macabeo; and the chalky/gypsum soils of El Lloar gift the Pedro Ximénez. The old vines of these sites are between 50 and 78 years old. The grapes were gently basket-pressed over the course of several hours, and the juice began its fermentation in tank before being sent to old, neutral Austrian oak foudres for 12 months. Huber and Peceric are ecstatic with the quality of their 2017 whites, as so they should be. The style now hinges more on purity and tension (less on development as in the past), without any sacrifice to the salinity and structure derived from its rocky soils. The wine was bottled unfiltered.
