Product Description
Details

Produced by the family winery Celler 9+, the wine Celler 9+ Selecció 3r is an intriguing natural white wine from DO Tarragona.

This varietal Spanish white wine is solely made from Cartoixà Vermell, the local name of Xarel·lo Vermell, a red-skinned mutation of the Xarel·lo variety which produces wines whose colour that can go from pale orange to deep salmon. The certified organic grapes were sourced from several parcels exposed to the cooling influence of Mediterranean sea winds.

This natural white wine from Tarragona was fermented and macerated with the skins in stainless steel tanks for about 30 days, after which the grapes were gently pressed.

Then the “first-press” wine was aged on lees in the tanks for 9 months, with weekly lees-stirrings.

The white wine Celler 9+ Selecció 3r 2023 was bottled with a small portion of the lees and with no added sulfites or chemical preservatives.

It is advisable to decant this organic white wine before drinking.

Appearance

The wine Celler 9+ Selecció 3r is copper-coloured with a steely and orangeish hue on the rim.

Nose

This varietal Cartoixà Vermell manages to combine some complexity with a lively rusticity. Pomegranate juice, ripe peach and blood orange, evolving into roasted dry fruit and herbs de Provence, with hints of flower honey and bread yeast.

Palate

This wine by Celler 9+ winery is gently meaty and saline, with a nice tannic structure, solid acidity and a long finish with an aftertaste of herbs, citrus and bone fruit.

Our personal opinion

The wine Celler 9+ Selecció 3r 2023 magically transports us to a Mediterranean pine forest on a summer day. You can almost hear the crickets sing...
