Availability: In stock
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 White Grenache and Grey Grenache (70%), complemented with Macabeo and Parellada.
The grapes were sourced from 15 to 20-year-old, organically farmed vines grown in clay-limestone soils. After a meticulous harvest and a 5-day maceration, alcoholic fermentation took place in concrete vats using only indigenous yeasts.
After that, Els Bassotets 2022 was aged for 10 months in stainless steel tanks. Before bottling, this natural wine was neither filtered nor clarified.
Because of its nicely untamed character, this no sulfites added wine greatly acknowledges aeration.
Decant this white wine from Conca de Barberà 30 minutes before drinking.
The white wine Els Bassotets is pale golden with some greenish tinges.
A bit reticent at the beginning, this blend of White Grenache, Grey Grenache, Macabeo and Parellada slowly opens to notes of ripe white fruit, citrus, peaches, white flowers, evolving into hints of dry fruit, toast, baked bread and fresh yeasts.
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.
