Product Description
Details

Produced by the Escoda-Sanahuja winery, a pioneer in the production of natural wine in Catalonia, La Llopetera is a single varietal Pinot Noir belonging to the DO Conca de Barberà.

A single estate Spanish red wine, the vines are planted in calcareous soils at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level. All of the farming operations follow the principles of biodynamic agriculture.

Once in the cellar, the grapes were destemmed prior to macerating and fermenting with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks.

After that, La Llopetera 2017 was transferred into French oak barrels, where this no added sulphites wine was aged for 6 months.

Finally, this organic red wine was bottled with no prior clarification or stabilization.

Decant 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine La Llopetera has a medium, red-coloured robe with a violet rim, very clean and bright for an unfined and unfiltered wine.

Nose

It is very important to aerate this biodynamic Pinot Noir, because the wine opens quite tight. After a while, though, it becomes very expressive, with pristine aromas of red fruit and notes of flowers, underbrush and wet earth, together with a mildly wild "bretty" note of leather and barnyard. There is also a gently mineral background and a toasted remembrance.

Palate

Subtle and well-balanced, this low sulphite wine certainly proves that the Escoda-Sanahuja winery has fine-tuned its craft over the years. Excellent acidity, with silky tannins and a character which succeds in being raw and inviting at the same time. Raspberries, bitter cocoa and coffee, with a pinch of toast and burning match. Long finish.

Our personal opinion

Complex and appealingly radical, La Llopetera 2017 is a terroir-bound Pinot Noir which successfully defies wine conventionalism.
