About The Wine

The Historic red and white wines are designed as a place to house the new plantings of Terroir al Limit and allow winemaker Dominik Hubert to blend together a more general representation of the region.

His famous ability to transmit the essence of the Priorat region like no other is on show here, even at this lower price point.

This is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Macabeo which is dry and tense yet filled with pulpy yellow fruits, honeysuckle and grilled nuts. It's classic Priorat, the way it used to taste.

About Terroir Al Limit

Dominik Hubert is leading something of a renaissance in the historical wine producing region of Priorat.

He is considered one of the brightest young stars of the region, pushing boundaries and striving to make the most elegant and eloquent wines of the region today. In his operation, tradition meets innovation - the old dry grown bush vines of Carignan and Grenache honoured with as little influence as possible from the hand of the winemaker.

These wines are a shining light of the region. Bucking the trend of hulking, oaky wines of yesteryear and bringing Priorat into a new era.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Made from 75% Grenache Blanc and 25% Macabeo—so roughly the same blend as a generation ago—this bottling revels in its robust Mediterranean texture but with a real restraint of fruit on the nose and palate for now. Pressed whole cluster, the 2017 was wild fermented and raised on lees for six months in a 5000-litre/ concrete tank. No destemming, no stainless steel, no pigeage, no extraction, and there is no new oak—nothing added, nothing taken away. You can just imagine it will flower with age delivering all kinds of beautiful honeysuckle and nutty notes. For now, the wine has a fabulous salinity running through it; a racy, chewy texture, with subtle hints of citrus pith, yellow plums and iodine. A fascinating and classy white wine that is old-school in the very best sense.

James Suckling

"Lots of candied citrus fruit and dried pears on the nose of this striking, dry white Priorat. Medium-full with plenty of fruit, a hint of tannin supporting the acidity and a clean long finish. Drink now or hold." - James Suckling (JamesSuckling.com)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
