Grape Variety: 10 red and white varieties
Producer: La Salada (Toni Carbó)
Region: Penedés, Catalunya, Spain
Wild Scale 3/5
Winemaking: A field blend of 10 red and white grape varieties were crushed by foot and fermented in concrete tanks with indigenous yeast. The wine was bottled before fermentation was complete in order to create fizz in the bottle (ancestral winemaking techniques). Pet Nat that is unfiltered with no added sulphur.
This Wine: One of our favourite Summer wines is back for the 2020 vintage and is looking as electric as ever in the glass. Light pink with refreshing acidity and notes of citrus and berry fruit but also a rocky, smokey vibe runs through the wine adding to its appeal. So easy to drink that you might need 2 bottles.
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 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.
