2021 Natural wine. 640 bottles

An idea. Eight Hands. Four people. Those facts and the quality of the grapes born in our “Sogas” vineyards, older than 50 years, have been the strength that allowed us to create this wine. 

The 9th of September 2021, at 7:00am in the morning, we harvested by hand and in boxes of 20kg, 518 kilos of Macabeu grapes planted on a soil of calcium and clay. We manually separated the grains from the stems so we could do a carbonic maceration inside an amphora of 350 liters made of clay, keeping the grains as whole as possible. After 12 hours of threshing we could fill the amphora. We covered this amphora with the grape stems to avoid oxidation.

THe 13th of September 2021, it began to spontaneously ferment without any added yeast, only with its own wild yeasts. The 5th of October this fermentation ended. During the fermentation we got aromas of pine seed and green apple. The oxidation was very low and the color stayed pale and clean. After the fermentation was finished, the skins remained in the wine for two more months, making it an “orange wine”. The 7th of December we transferred the wine into an inox tank and separated the skins before bringing the wine back to the amphora. We pressed those skins and got 255 liters of wine extra that we added to the wine. The 7th of February we bottled the final wine. This wine doesn’t have any added sulfur, hasn’t been clarified nor filtered. This is a wine that wants to respect the grapes and we worked with minimal intervention possible to do it so. The result is fruit from our old vineyards.
