Availability: In stock
A varietal Xarel·lo Vermell (Red Xarel·lo), this Pétillant Naturel is made from vines located in Massís del Garraf, a coastal mountain range composed of limestone soils with an abundance of marine fossils.
Picked by hand, the grapes were meticulously selected on arriving at the cellar and macerated for 12 hours. Following the ancestral method, alcoholic fermentation started in stainless steel tanks and finished inside the bottle, with no added sugar whatsoever. After that, Finca Viladellops LD Ancestral Brut Nature 2018 was aged for about 30 months, during which period lees were stirred twice.
This characterful, sophisticated Pét-Nat produced by the ancestral method will pair marvelously with rice dishes.
The organic sparkling wine Finca Viladellops LD Ancestral Brut Nature is onion-skin coloured, with some steely tinges.
Deeply Mediterranean, but in a restrained, kind of austere manner, this varietal Xarel·lo Vermell conveys deep mineral notes, with hints of aromatic herbs, red berries and fine lees. Intriguing and ever-evolving.
This organic Pétillant Naturel of bodega Finca Viladellops is crisp, linear and dry. It has an excellent definition, with a phenomenal acidity and some tiny, palate-caressing bubbles. Vinous and substantial, it has a very long finish with some bitter and mineral remembrances.
