Can Sumoi Sumoll-Garnatxa 2019
% | 75cl |
Raventós i Blanc winery has managed to conquer the wine world generation after generation. With an obsession for respecting the balance of the estate as much as possible and highlighting the small Conca del riu Anoia denomination, this winery has gained international recognition with still and sparkling wines with a high mineral expression. And they have delivered again with their recovery of Can Sumoi, an estate with forests and vineyards in the Serra de Montmell, in the Baix Penedès (Catalonia).
This is where they make natural wines that are free from anything artificial, but steeped in tradition. These wines are made from the Can Sumoi vineyard, which is planted with Sumoll, a variety that is at risk of extinction in Penedès and is known as the “Mediterranean Pinot Noir.” The Can Sumoi Sumoll-Garnatxa wine is made with this variety accompanied by another native variety, the Garnacha.
The grapes come from vines lying at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level. These vines are cultivated according to biodynamic principles and the grapes are fermented in the winery with minimal intervention in stainless steel tanks.
The wine remains in stainless steel tanks for 12 months and finally it is bottled without stabilisation or filtering and without adding any oenological products. This work results in Can Sumoi Sumoll-Garnatxa, a natural high altitude red wine from the DO Penedès, with a great Mediterranean character and made through minimal intervention.
