Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Pedra de Guix is a white wine coupage of the Pedro Ximénez, Macabeo and Garnacha Blanca varieties produced by Terroir al Límit, in the D.O.Q. Priorat, in Catalonia.

The grapes used to make Pedra de Guix come from various plots lying at altitudes ranging from 400 to 600 metres. The Pedro Ximénez variety comes from vineyards in Lloar with clay soils. The Macabeo grape comes from Torroja del Priorat vineyards with predominantly alluvial soils and the Garnacha Blanca comes from vines in Poboleda planted on slate soils. The strains range in age from 50 to 80 years old.

To make the Pedra de Guix wine, the three varieties are used in equal parts and are pressed without destemming in an old vertical basket press. The must extraction is almost done by hand: the grapes are crushed gently over an hour in the press and then they are pressed directly. During this process, a combination of extraction, oxygen and maceration develops, which gives a uniquely expressive touch to their white wines.

Dominik Huber is the heart and soul of the winery together with Eben Sadie, a esteemed South African winemaker. Between the two they have declared their intent through their work at Terroir al Límit. They work under a philosophy of minimal intervention where they consider themselves more craftsmen than producers and that their challenge is to link intellect, sensitivity and practical work. This philosophy has led them to create expressive and elegant wines that are among the best and most sought after in the world, as well as being highly thought of by international critics.

Pictures and situation Terroir al Límit
Priorat is craftsmanship and tradition, old and robust vines that are grown and born deep inside the province of Tarragona. They are grown on slopes that are sleety with low fertility and difficult to grow in. In Priorat they produce great red wines of an excellent quality, a maroon colour, robust, dense and rich flavour, intense aromas and sometimes there are reflections present of minerals from the soils.
