Tasting Notes

Taking its name from the local terminology for the vineyard’s red clay and gypsum soils, Guix Vermell was planted with Garnacha some 75 years ago. Peceric and Huber only use the finest selection of fruit from the site to produce between just 1,200 and 1,600 bottles per vintage. The 2018 was whole-bunch fermented in Italian terracotta amphorae for about seven to 10 days, then lightly pressed and returned to the same vessels for six months. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered at 13%. The reviews for this ‘Montsant-Chambertin’ tell you everything you need to know. The price is breathtaking, but then so is the wine.

Winemakers Note

Working alongside Huber, Head of Oenology at Terroir al Límit and Terroir Sense Fronteres is the talented Serbian-born vigneron, Tatjana Peceric. Peceric’s rare touch with high-grown Garnacha and Cariñena is cast, clear as crystal, across these wines, and it’s no coincidence that the purity and refinement of the Terroir al Límit range has also soared under her watch. Over in Montsant, the winemaking is essentially a facsimile of the practices at Terroir al Límit (although these wines see no oak at all). All of the wines (except the skin-contact white 'Brisat') are fermented as whole bunches in concrete, amphorae and stainless steel, and extraction is as gentle as possible (Peceric and Huber work with the infusion-rather-than-extraction model). There are no bells, no whistles, no oak, just clarity and vibrancy, succulent, textural fruit and the tremendous finesse that only a special and meticulously farmed place can gift. These are beautiful wines born of the stony terroirs of Montsant, and carry the unique, mineral signature of their slate- and limestone-rich soils. They also have the kind of freshness, lightness of being, crunchy-juiciness and sensuality that had long been lost to Priorat until Terroir al Límit’s appearance on the scene.
