Availability: In stock
Produced in Massís del Garraf, a limestone-rich area within Penedès, Clos Lentiscus Rosé Brut Nature is an uncommon Spanish sparkling wine made solely from Samsó (aka Carignan) vineyards planted in 1939.
The base wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature using native yeasts. Secondary fermentation took place inside the bottle, followed by a 20-month ageing period. This sparkling wine from Penedès was not added liqueur de dosage (shipping liquor) after the disgorgement.
It is worth noting that bodega Can Ramon del Montgròs manages the vineyards following rigorous biodynamic principles. This minimal intervantion approach also informs the winemaking techniques.
The production of Clos Lentiscus Rosé totalized less than 6,000 bottles.
The sparkling wine Clos Lentiscus Rosé Brut Nature is medium salmon with some amber glints.
This rosé sparkling wine from Samsó smells of wild berries and Mediterranean scrubland, evolving into citrus, fine lees and a flinty remembrance characteristic of the Massís del Garraf area.
This sparkler from Clos Lentiscus is structured, fresh and creamy. Wild berries, flowers and mineral remembrances. Medium-long finish with a gently bitter note.
