Dominik Huber of Terroir Al Limit spotted the Arbossar vineyard while riding his motorbike around Priorat. Conventional wisdom suggested that north-facing Carignan would not make a great wine. Dominik thought otherwise. He was right. These 90 year old vines make an exceptionally fine Priorat, with an emphasis on elegance, finesse and pure red fruit.
