Additional Information

This ancestral method (petinallant naturel) Sparkling represents a Xarel·lo vineyard of 53 years old. By making this ancestral sparkling wine, I want to show the potential of ageing and gaining complexity that this profile of wines has.

Specifically, this wine has been 10 month ageing with the lees, with the objective of gaining mouth volum and certain yeast influence. After this month of lees ageing, was disgorged in orther to keep on evolving more, nevertheless, without giving more yeast profile and making the fruit the main character of this interesting sparkling wine.

I am Ferran Lacruz, a young winemaker who in 2018 started a natural wine project based in Catalonia. This project is called “Bodega Clandestina”. A natural wine cellar that wants to be out of any appellation of origin or regulation, to not having any barrier to imagine and create. This small winery wants to make small and accurate vinifications with grapes coming from organic and biodynamics agriculture. These grapes are locals and we basically work with Xarel·lo, eventhought we play as well with Carignan Blanc. Something so important for me it is to produce clean natural wines. With that commitment I work so hard to achieve it. That is why we harvest manually and we exclusively use wild yeast for every fermentation. I strictly believe that the grape skins is something so important for the natural wine making, for that reason all the wines produced had been skin fermented. We like to see our wines evolving and we love to use many materials to age them, Amphores, demijohn, barrels. We are curious that is why we are not putting limits to keep on trying new things. We are not adding any additive to our wines neither any sulphites. As we like to see a natural evolution on them, but we want them to evolve properly, we are not finning nor filtering, to keep the wine structure and protection. We promise you work and effort to bring wines which represents the most as we can our region and our personal growing vintage after vintage! Cheers!
