Hot Girl Summer 2021
Chateau Baby Girl
Grape Variety: 11 grape variety field blend (Xarel Lo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Macabeo, Chardonnay, Malvasia, Garnacha and more)
Producer: Chateau Baby Girl (Fernando Berry)
Region: Penedès, Catalunya, Spain
Vegan friendly wine
Wild Scale: 5/5
Winemaking: A field blend of organic grapes (both white and red) were hand harvested and lightly foot pressed. This was then infused to direct press juice of Chardonnay and Macabeo. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in stainless steel. Aged in tank before bottling with no fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: Wild pink juice with electric acidity. Rhubarb and pink grapefruit aromas dominate. This was made with grapes from Catalan producer Clot de les Soleres. Fernando's first ever wine. Very small production.
Notes on the Winemaker: Chateau Baby Girl is an esteemed 300 hectare estate on the left bank in Bordeaux. Not really. It's actually the winemaking project of Fernando Berry, well known for his import company Otros Vinos that has been championing the pioneers of Spanish natural wine for years now. Fernando has built such a close relationship with so many of his winemakers that it has helped realise his dream to make his own wine. 2021 was his first vintage and we look forward to more in the future.
