Carlania, SOO! Free, Pet Nat
By Pete's Provisions
WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
60% Parellada, 40% Trepat. A sparkling wine made according to ancient methods by Celler Carlania using the Parellada and Trepat varieties in the D.O. Conca de Barberà (Catalonia). Aromas of fresh red fruit, floral notes and herbaceous touches. On the palate it is light, agile and fruity. The finish is refreshing and pleasant.
ABOUT THE WINERY
Carlania Soofree comes from vineyards certified and recognised by CCPAE (Catalan Council of Organic Production). These are remote estates with unique characteristics, lying between 400 and 500 metres above sea level. They use biodynamic agriculture and phytosanitary treatments that do not leave any residue. They make their biodynamic preparations according to the lunar calendar. The harvest is carried out manually in 20 kg boxes. In the winery, Carlania Soofree is vinified with native yeasts and before alcoholic fermentation finishes, it is bottled so that the process continues in the bottle. That is where it ages for a short time until disgorgement, where a small amount of the same wine is used to fill the bottles. It is not filtered or clarified and no sulphur is added. It may have some natural sediment.
