This rich, textured blend of Grenache Blanc (50%) and PedroXimenez (50%) is only the second white wine to grace the
Terroir al Limit family. The clay soils of El Molar, an ancient
mining village at the southern end of Priorat, offer an ideal
haven for 25-year old Pedro Ximenez (PX) vines that yield
fruit of unparalleled finesse from these north-facing vineyards. The power of the skin-contact PX is softened with the grenache blanc from the slate/clay of La Morera del Montsant.
The grapes are hand harvested, fermented in whole bunches
for 3 - 5 days in inox and cement tanks, and then aged for
8 months in cement. The traditional combination of extraction, oxidation and maceration encourages sleek and structured layers – almost more red in style than white – to emerge on the palate and convey the unmistakable voice of the sites. From an initial rich, fino-like character emerges a wine of tension and freshness, racy citrus layers of white currant, mirabelle and spring flowers. A singular expression that belies the full finesse and depth of the region.
