Celler La Salada, Penedès Roig Boig Metode Ancestral (Pet Nat) 2020

$27.00 Excl. tax

Nice fine bubble character, more herbaceous fruit than fruity fruit. Zippy acid and minerality. Tart strawberry, lemon, river rock.

Toni Carbó built Mas Candí with his best friend and business partner Ramón Jané before starting Celler La Salada in 2012. His family’s estate soils ring with life; they’ve been farmed sustainably for generations, untouched by chemicals. Their vineyards are not tilled; this is true minimal intervention agriculture. The objective is to have the highest variety life in the soil and create a natural balance within the environment. Toni’s old vines express Vi Català as it was when his grandfather made it: fresh, characterful, and lively. No additions, including sulfur, whatsoever in any of his wines and now biodynamics are being practiced.

A field blend of Catalan varietals (both red and white): Sumoll, Roigenc, Mando, Cannonnau, Monica, Torbat, Parellada and Xarello. The vineyard was planted in 2006 with these ancient Catalan grapes in calcareous clay soil. The vineyard is not tilled, this is true minimal intervention agriculture. The objective is to have the highest variety life in the soil and create a natural balance within the environment. Manual harvest in 10 kg boxes, with selection of the grapes in the vineyard. The grapes are chilled down and 90% of them (even the reds) are direct pressed. The other 10% is macerated for 4 months with virtually no extraction to limit color and tannins. Indigenous yeasts and no additions including zero SO2. Fermented in stainless steel and bottled near the end of fermentation to capture CO2.

ORGANIC. LOW SULFITES. BIODYNAMIC. NATURAL.
