Malvasia de Sitges
Sota Els Ametllers 2020
Grape Variety: Malvasia de Sitges
Producer: La Salada (Toni Carbó & Anna Serra)
Region: Penedés, Catalunya, Spain
Wild Scale 5/5
Winemaking: Organic Malvasia de Sitges grapes grown in a single plot were harvested by hand. Fermented and on the skins for 14 days. Bottled with no fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: One of Toni's best orange wines has been ageing in our cellar for a couple of years and is now tasting amazing. Almost impossible to find old vintages of this cuvée so don't miss out. This is made from a rare Malvasia clone which only adds to its mystery and appeal. The name means "under the almond tree" in reference to the vineyard where these grapes were grown.
Notes on the Winemaker: Toni Carbó is one half of the esteemed Cava house (with friend Ramon Jané), Mas Candí in Penedés. He started his own project La Salada with partner Anna Serra in 2012 to focus on making wines like his Grandfather used to. They are some of most sought after as they provide an authentic and honest expression of Catalan terroir.
