Why we love this
From the Costador vineyards in Catalonia comes this unique orange wine that is bursting with savoury citrus fruit character and has a crisp acidic freshness.
Made from an ancient, almost extinct Catalan grape variety, Sumoll Blanc are grown on 80-year-old bush vines at 600m above sea level. The wine is left to bubble away in an amphora for 12 weeks before its juice is extracted and then left to ferment again in an amphora for 6 months. It is then bottled in beautiful clay bottles to protect it from light exposure.
Winemaker Joan Franquet farms the ancient vineyards biodynamically with minimal intervention. Joan's vineyard is more than just a winery, it’s a real adventure, he discovers the most difficult places for growing grapes whilst also trying to revive almost extinct varieties.
The perfect accompaniment to chicken and pork dishes. Best served between 10-12°С.
Nose: Bright notes of apricot and hints of citrus, with more subtle notes of flowers, nuts and dried fruit.
Palate: Sweet, but at the same time it has a noticeable sour taste. Flavours of Mediterranean fruits including orange, pear and melon followed by spicey herby notes.
