Overview

Terra de Cuques is a white wine made in the same way that Dominik Huber makes his 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 1-2 weeks on the skins, the wine is pressed and finishes fermentation in a concrete tank. This method infuses the wine with the phenolic compounds of the skins without extracting the tannins. Cuques is a blend of Pedro Ximénez and Muscat d’Alexandria ranging in age from 20–35 years old, grown on schist and clay limestone soils.
