Winery Finca Mas Perdut

Region Baix Penedes, Spain

Grapes Sumoll 100%
ProfileIntense ruby color with purple shades which present a low layer of color. On the nose the intensity and the high concentration of red fruits aroma stands out such as raspberry, blueberry and unripe strawberries. On the palate, the flavors are riper, softer, with a round mouthfeel. An easy wine to drink, elegant, and smooth..
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 1.5 kg per plant.
WinemakingSoft pressed 50% of the yield, followed by 6 days of maceration. Fermentation with native yeasts in steel tank lasted for 4 weeks, and ended in barrel, amphora and demijohn.
More About the WineSumoll is an almost extinct variety, only about 90 hectares throughout Catalonia exist in the whole world! That makes it even cooler that they use three materials such as wood, soil ,and glass (barrels, amphora, and demijohn) as the winemaker's grandfather explained to him was done in the past.
