The final cru of pure Carignan, this vineyard sits at 600 metre altitude and is largely black slate. The only wine which needs serious time to come around, there is a reduction on opening which should preserve the wine well - if opened young, it would require decanting. Much darker than the rest of the range, both in colour and in character - black fruits, liquorice, graphite, clove, wild herbs... though tightly wound, a beautiful perfume is starting to develop and this should be floral and seductive in a few years' time. The acidity is remarkable - firm but balanced.

About Terroir al Limit

Terroir al Limit was conceived in 2001, it is a project dreamed up by South African legend Eben Sadie and German foodie Dominik Huber. Though Sadie has taken a step back since 2012, Huber’s winemaking has been going from strength to strength. Vines are farmed biodynamically and the estate is in the midst of being certified organic. Dominik embraces the minimalist approach, allowing his wines to ferment with indigenous yeasts. In fact, Luis Gutiérrez reports that Dominik is even doing away with oak foudres, choosing instead to age their wines in concrete for an even purer expression of this wonderful terroir.

The ‘Dits del Terra’ is produced from 100% Cariñena (also known as Carignan) harvested from vines over 60 years old. Yields are low, with only about 2,000 bottles produced per vintage.
