Product Description
Details

This low-sulphur Spanish white wine comes from the southern Catalan region of Conca de Barberà.

Crafted by the Escoda-Sanahuja winery, one of the pioneers of Catalonia's vibrant natural wine scene, Els Bassotets is a blend of 70% Macabeo and 30% Chenin.

The grapes were sourced from 15 to 20-year-old, organically farmed vines grown in clay-limestone soils. After a meticulous harvest, fermentation took place in concrete vats using only indigenous yeasts.

After that, Els Bassotets 2020 was aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks. Before bottling, this natural wine was neither filtered nor clarified.

Because of its nicely untamed character, this no added sulphites wine greatly acknowledges aeration.

Decant this white wine from Conca de Barberà 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The white wine Els Bassotets is pale golden with some greenish tinges.

Nose

Tight and closed at the beginning, this blend of Macabeo and Chenin Blanc slowly opens to notes of ripe white fruit, citrus, peaches, white flowers, evolving into hints of dry fruit, toast, baked bread and fresh yeasts.

Palate

Pleasant, fruity and excitingly wild. This low-sulfites white wine from the Escoda-Sanahuja winery has an uplifting character and a great acidity. Complex notes of ripe white fruit, underbush, flowers and yeasts. Long, savoury finish.

Our personal opinion

Uncompromisingly original Els Bassotets 2020 drinks great without food, and also pairs excellently with pasta, rice and fish recipes.

Being a natural wine geek, I've been following Escoda-Sanahuja winery over the last years. The winery has consistently honed its winemaking procedures over the years. This is the best proof. An unimpeachable no-sulphur added Chenin.
