Celler La Salada, Xarel-lo La Bufarella 2020

$36.00 Excl. tax

Slightly funky, natural wine, mouth-tingling minerality, dry, subtle peach and orange peel, long finish with a touch of citrus.

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.

100% Xarello. The vineyard , just 1.1 ha, was planted in 1982 and is located between Pla del Penedès and Subirats on a steep north-facing slope. 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. Grapes are cooled to 4º C for 24 hours then macerated with the skins for 6 months. Natural fermentation without adding yeast, or SO2, or any other product; in stainless steel tanks. Aged in steel and bottled with the lunar calendar directly from tank without filtration or racking with SO2. Approx annual production: 200-250 cs.
