2018 Textures de Pedra
50% Xarel·lo Vermell, 25% Sumoll & 25% Bastard Negre
Xarel.lo and Bastard Negre from Vinya Més Alta, located at the top of the Serral hill, the highest plot on the estate - an unusual stony soiled vineyard with excellent drainage and low yields. Sumoll and Parellada in a high altitude vineyard in the West of the Conca del Riu Anoia, in which the varieties are co-planted.
Made in the traditional method. Vinification is done separately by variety (except Sumoll & Parellada) and soil type in stainless steel tanks followed by blending and secondary fermentation in the bottle, aged for a minimum of 42 months. Zero Dosage.

“The toasty 2018 Textures de Pedra wants to be the expression of the Mediterranean grapes in the Penedès climate, a blanc de noirs with 50% Xarel·lo Vermell, 25% Sumoll and 25% Bastard Negre (the local strain of Graciano adapted to the place, identified already in the 1920s), a powerful and energetic wine with light and electricity, moderate alcohol and very good acidity. The wine is velvety and dry, with zero sugar and a stony sensation in the palate.”

"Scents of pine nuts lead into tangy and pale flavors of Ruby Red grapefruit zest and green apple skin. This is a brisk, cool sparkling wine with seashell minerality—with the particular fattiness of fresh-shucked oysters, and a mouthwatering accompaniment to a dozen."
