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 his lightest, freshest red cuveé - a sea of licorice, berries and gentle spice. Delicious and cool to the last drop. As Dominik describes it, it's Priorat Unplugged.

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

Unlike the site specific wines of Terroir Al Limit, Terroir Històric is devoted to expressing the complex character of the whole of Priorat in two colors: white and red. While the project launched in 2015 is a remarkable incubator for new plantings from the clay and schist soils of Montsant, it is also a liquid homage, utilizing the négocient tradition of the past to secure a sustainable future. Terroir Històric encourages young farmers to not only return to family vineyards in the region’s 9 villages in and around Torroja, but also transition these family vines to organic farming. Històric Negre is a blend of Priorat’s traditional red varieties: Grenche Noir (75 %) and Cariñena (25 %).

Harnessing the simple, honest power of great fruit means a truly hands off approach in the cellar: hand harvest, whole cluster naturally ferment, and transfer to cement tank for eight months. No steel, no extraction, no oak. Crisp red fruit aromas of pomegranate and hibiscus, fennel and blackberry are underscored with the savory accents of smoky garrigue. Fine-grained tannins shape the balanced palate into one both juicy and mouthwatering. Wine at both its most basic, and most beautiful. Priorat unplugged.

Wine Advocate

“It's a fruit-driven, light, refreshing Mediterranean blend with notes of licorice and wild berries. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and a soft, caressing texture. I tasted the wine that was going to be bottled (in March 2018). They expect to fill some 6,000 bottles.” - Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate)

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 1300 668 385 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).
