2012 Terroir al Limit "Terra de Cuques" Priorat

SKU #1254702 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Light gold. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes poached pear, toasted nuts, lemon curd and smoky minerals; smells a lot like a wine from the Jura. Sappy, broad and dry, displaying an array of intense orchard and pit fruit flavors that are given spine and bite by firm acidity. Closes chewy and long, with zesty mineral cut and lingering notes of almond and bitter citrus pith. (JR)  (9/2013)

K&L Notes

Based in the village of Torroja, Terroir al Limit represents the vanguard in a newly energized Priorat. Proprietor Dominik Huber produces bright, expressive, mineral drenched wines that are powerful and representative of Priorat, yet somehow altogether something different due to their acidity and relatively lighter, more tense style. These are wines made from grapes picked on the earlier side, that are fermented with whole clusters and then allowed to age in anything other than a stainless steel tank or new wooden vessel. Terra de Cuqes is a blend of Pedro Ximenez and Muscat de Alexandria, macerated on the skins for 15 days and aged for a year in concrete tank. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
