“Terroir al Límit is one of the names that are defining the Priorats of the 21st century. They don't have a destemmer here (or in Montsant), and all their wines ferment with indigenous yeasts, so the wines are about naked expression of the grapes and places, wines of great purity.” Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate\n“Next level wines. I can think of few Spanish producers making wines of such excitement, charisma and transparent-feeling representation of place. Terroir al Límit produce cuvees of skeletal architecture, and filigreed expression of grape varieties, like no other from Priorat, let alone Spain.” Mike Bennie, The Wine Front\n“Some of Huber’s most compelling wines are white, namely his Pedra de Guix, a blend of native grapes from vines up to eighty years old. This wine process that Priorat’s famed minerality shows up as deftly in white wine as in red.” Parr \u0026amp; Mackay, The Sommelier’s Atlas of Taste\nI caught Dominik Huber at the wrong time. His partner, Tatjana Peceric, was resting, leaving Huber literally holding the baby—young Filipa was born not even four weeks ago. Not wanting to intrude, we quickly ran through some recent vintages in hushed tones. Next to the relatively serene 2018 vintage, 2019 was a more tumultuous year in the vineyards. And, while the meagre yields delivered power, it’s a power worn lightly by a beautiful set of wines wreathed in minerality and reverberating with superb, balancing freshness. It’s a year that lovers of this defining producer should feel right at home with. In terms of yields alone, 2020 was even less obliging. Huber noted that only the Priorat elders would remember the last time the region suffered from an attack of mildew on this scale. It was a season also shackled by Covid restrictions, thereby depriving Terroir al Límit of the workforce required to battle the heavy disease pressure. Ultimately, Huber and Peceric chose to pick their battle, focussing their efforts on protecting their Arbossar vineyard, the site closest to their base in Torroja. It’s a decision that has paid off, meaning Terroir al Limit releases just a single wine from 2020, but it’s a gorgeous Cariñena of palate-sweeping intensity and lifted freshness. We also offer two cracking whites from 2021. “It rained on and off all harvest,” Huber told me, but rather than be downcast, this atypical grower was in his element; the cooler, wetter season allowed him to harvest some of his lowest sugar levels from his vineyards without any dilution of flavour (remember this grower has always said he would pick his Priorat wines at lower alcohol if it did not mean losing his DOQ status). The results include some of the most striking, savoury and mineral-charged white wines we have tasted from this producer. As mentioned in a previous offer, Huber and Peceric are obsessed with purity, and since 2019 their wines have been raised almost exclusively in concrete vessels. Indeed, Terroir al Límit recently sold its entire oak inventory. Of the wines below, only the white Pedra de Guix and red Dit del Terra were raised with a measure of large-format oak and, from 2021 there will be none whatsoever. Oak has never played a defining role in the story of these wines, and experience with the Montsant project, Terroir Sense Fronteres—wines that have never seen any oak—has swayed this grower’s decision. “We came to see that our wines respond better to concrete”, Huber explains. “They are crunchier and more vital. It’s not necessarily the same for other growers, but it works for us.”\nYou can view more information about Terroir al Límit and the full available range here.
