For the most part, Priorat is red wine country. But there is some very good, underappreciated white made here, mostly drunk by the locals. Dominik Huber of Terroir al Limit is bringing these wines to a wider audience by making 50% of his 'Històric' range white. A blend of Macabeo and Grenache Blanc, it's lovely, thirst-quenching stuff with some serious texture and complexity.
A real smokiness here that I suspect is more terroir than reduction. Bone-dry texture, chalky and fresh, some stone fruit but it’s as much about texture as fruit flavour. Slight and attractive grip.
