We seldom hear about the wines of Priorat before the arrival of René Barbier (of the (then) ‘in vogue’ winemaking techniques from France), before the influence of stateside wine advocates. Terroir Históric is Dominik Huber's homage to the Priorat that time forgot. Working co-op style with a roster of younger growers who have—with Huber's guidance—made the investment in organic, first rate viticulture, the fruit may be drawn from all nine historic villages of Priorat: El Lloar, Porrera, La Vilella Baixa, La Vilella Alta, Escaladei, Bellmunt, Gratallops, Torroja and Poboleda. 

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 real restraint of fruit on the nose and palate, for now. Pressed whole-cluster, the 2018 was wild fermented and raised on lees for six months in a 5000-litre concrete tank. No de-stemming, no stainless steel, no pigéage, no extraction, and  no new oak—nothing added, nothing taken away.
