Terrer Singular Amphore White 2019

Winery Finca Mas Perdut

Region Baix Penedes, Spain

Grapes Malvasia de Sitges 100%
ProfileStraw yellow straw colour with greenish reflections. In the nose it stands out due to its complexity and intensity of the fruit and aromatic herbs on a saline background that is native to amphora. In the mouth it is very fresh, soft and sweet with a balanced acidity and greasyness that envelops the mouth during its course.
Grape GrowingSoil composition is clay-loam soil with shallow depth of 30 cm. Manual harvest in the morning brought in a great harvest thanks to a good ripeness of the grapes. The harvest was early, leading. to good acidity. Yields were 1.3 kg per plant.
WinemakingSoft pressed 50% of the yield, followed by 24 hours of maceration. Fermentation with native yeasts in steel tank lasted for 3 weeks, and ended in amphora.
More About the WineWe started making this wine because we wanted to present a unique variety such as the Sitges Malvasia, a variety that produces very unique wines, with great acidity, very aromatic and limited in volume. Only about 60 hectares are planted.
