Additional Information

Alcohol: 11.5% Bottle size: 75cl Age of vines: Planted in 1989 by Amos's grandfather. The harvest is made manual into boxes of less than 15 kg, very slowly, selectively, and in several passes to pick only perfectly ripe grapes. Grapes not ripe enough are not picked. The harvest is put into stainless steel (inox) tank and foot-trodden and then closed to start the fermentation in semi-carbonic manner and with some temperature control to a max of 22ºC. It spends around 10 days on the skins before being painstakingly pressed to two old 300L French oak barrels to continue the fermentation. The wine stays there for ten months un-touched before racking by gravity and bottling. Silk texture! An amazing aromatic complexity !
something
Former pharmacist in the Barcelona region, Amós Bañeres decided to change life a few years ago. He came back to his native Penedès and took over the 5.5 h family vineyards. Xarel-Lo, Macabeu, Parellada, Garnatxa Negre, small production, organic viticulture since the beginning… A lot of attention is given to the viticulture and vinification. Amós knows how to let his grapes have time, but doesn’t neglect any details. The resulting production is so far very tiny, he uses amphoras and old barrels for his vinification in the small shed just next to his house.
