Pet Nat Organic Wine - Sparkling Ancestral Method with 100% Xarel·lo. 90% of the grapes comes from the 2019 harvest. After several dry years, 2019 was rainy during spring, warm but with decreasing temperatures at the end of the season. This promoted the maintaining of acidity and helped to develop fruity aromas. The hand-picked harvest is de-stemmed, and gently pressed direct to ferment in stainless steel. Using natural yeasts, in tank around 14 days, bottled when there’s 21g residual sugar left and the ferment continues in bottle. It’s on lees at around 15ºC for 18 months before being disgorged. A very fresh, very citrus and mineral wine with an exceptional salinity and freshness.
