Cava Tinc Set Ancestral 2021
Availability: In stock
A lively Spanish sparkling wine produced by the Mas Candí winery, Tinc Set Ancestral is crafted following the ancestral method. In other words, this is a Pét Nat wine (from the French "Pétillant Naturel").
A blend of 60% Xarel·lo and 40% Parellada, this Penedès sparkling wine was produced from vines grown in clayey-limestone soils located in Avinyonet del Penedès. The vineyards are farmed with minimal intervention techniques, and following organic and biodynamic procedures.
The grapes were picked up by hand and refrigerated on arriving at the cellar. Alcoholic fermentation began in stainless steel tanks, but was finished inside the bottle. After that, Tinc Set Ancestral 2021 was aged on its lees for 8 months.
This unpretentious sparkling wine produced through the ancestral method is irresistible. Pair with light dishes or drink without food.
The sparkling wine Tinc Set Ancestral is deep straw with some greenish tinges.
This blend of Xarel·lo and Parellada is lively and youthful. Fennel, green apples and lime, with a creamy note and a fleck of fine lees. There is a mineral background with a note of aromatic herbs.
Fresh and funky, this sparkler from bodega Mas Candí has a dry, clean easy passage through the palate. Tiny bubbles, great drinkability and lively finish with a citrusy note and a slightly bitter remembrance.
