About This Wine

Vi de Terra Viva, the equivalent of a villages wine. Terra de Cuques is a blend of 90% Pedro Ximénez from the clay soils from Le Molar and 10% Moscatel de Alejandría on the north-facing slate soils of Porrera. The source vineyards face northeast and are 400 to 600m above sea level. The aspect means the vines are sheltered from the sun’s harshest rays, while the altitude results in cool nights that lock in refreshing acidity. The bush vines also play their role in maximising coolness and freshness.

As with all the whites here, this wine is evolving to be a more precise and focussed style. In the cellar the PX is layered in a wine press and sees gentle foot pressure over a period of one hour; then it is basket-pressed, providing a combination of extraction and maceration. The Muscat portion is made in the same way the domaine makes its reds: whole clusters are layered in a fermentation tank where the weight of the bunches creates enough juice for fermentation to begin spontaneously; then, after one to two weeks, the wine is pressed and finishes fermentation in a concrete tank.

It’s a wonderfully unique expression of high-country Priorat—with mouth-coating texture and energising, beautifully entwined mineral grip. 2021 is the most exhilarating and thirst-inducing Terra de Cuques we have yet tasted: subtle citrus and honeyed florals combine on a palate dripping with texture and light, all underscored by a cool, fundamental stoniness.

Wines of Spain

With 2.9 million acres of land planted in wine grapes, Spain is the most widely planted wine producing nation and second largest producer in the world. Many styles of wine are produced in the country most of which are based on native grape varietals.

The two most famous regions are Rioja and Ribera del Duero for their Tempranillo production. Rioja Tempranillo (the classic) will be lighter and fresher with red fruit flavours as compared to those from Ribera del Duero that are often deep purple, higher in alcohol with more tannins and intense black fruit character. Rioja is also known for producing Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from the indigenous Viura varietal.

In the Catalonia region, Spain is recognized for making a sparkling wine in the traditional method but using native grape varieties. This is called Cava. Priorat, a subregion within Catalonia specializes in making still red blends of Garnacha, Carignan and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon in a bold and full-bodied style. Together with Rioja, wines from Priorat have achieved DOCa/DOQ status signifying their quality.

Sherry is Spain’s famous fortified wine which can either be completely dry, lusciously sweet or somewhere in between. This is made in the southern region of Jerez.

Other notable Spanish wine styles include: Monastrell (AKA. Mataro/Mourvèdre), produced in the Jumilla region and refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo from north western Galacia.
