Pedra de Guix 2015
Pedra de Guix es el blanco "oxidativo" de Dominik Huber. Un vino que sorprende, inédito, para paladares curiosos, sobre todo en el apartado de blancos. La Pedro Ximénez, Macabeo y Garnacha blanca se tratan con exquisita suavidad, con una vinificación que combina magistralmente conceptos como extracción, oxidación y maceración, dando como resultado un blanco para el recuerdo, dificil de precisar en palabras por lo complejo de sus matices.

Opinión de los críticos
The white 2015 Pedra de Guix is a blend of one-third each of Pedro Ximénez, Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo from old vines on different soils and different villages. There is always a touch of skin contact and some controlled oxidation in the whites here, as it gives them character. The whites here also have the structure to stand up to food—they are more food wines than refreshing whites, even if they are fresh. This is ripe and open but very precise, and it seems to have better delineation. The palate is dry and shows some austerity. It has beautiful flintstone notes and a salinity that give it freshness and character. For Dominik Huber, it's a wine that shows a side of Priorat that is not easy to show with reds. Each grape aged separately in 500-liter oak barrels, and the blend had a further 12 months in foudre before it was bottled. 4,600 bottles were filled in May 2017.
This wine shows a beautiful density and freshness with waxy, dried apple and honey notes. Full body, dense and very structured with a dried fruit and salty finish that is long and intense. Layered and beautiful. More like a red than a white. Serious. Full white Burgundy combined with sherry treatment in ageing. 5,000 bottles made.
