    A fresh, young combination

    Modernising of a tradition since the beginnings of Sumarroca. Traditional coupage from Penedès updated 25 years ago by Sumarroca, with a small proportion of small grain Muscat, all from our own vineyards.

    CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINEYARD

    The wine comes from two of our estates. Firstly, the Sumarroca estate (Sant Sadurní d’Anoia) at the northernmost part of the denomination of origin. The lands are poor, chalky and contain gravel. The influence of the sea is diminished by the Garraf mountains which dry out the sea winds, while the precoastal mountain range protects the estate against dry winds from inland. The other part of the coupage comes from the Sabartés estate to the south of the denomination of origin and is clearly influenced by the sea, with a milder climate and wines with a more Mediterranean character.

    HARVEST

    The 2014 harvest began with heavy rains in November, followed by a mild and very dry winter. Budbreak was some days earlier than in previous years. Rains of up to 60 litres at the start of budbreak promoted healthy growth. Spring was mild, especially during the daytime, and rather dry. There was no consistent rainfall until towards the end of May. Temperatures rose considerably in June and the weather was very humid. Daytime temperatures were moderate for the rest of the summer with normal lows and some rain. Harvesting began a little later than usual and production was down on the previous year.

    TASTING NOTES

    Fresh, elegant aroma with notes of summer fruits such as Starking apples and pears combined with a touch of white orange blossom. Fresh and fruity in the mouth with a very pleasant finish.

    WINEMAKING

    The grapes are brought in and pressed in separate batches for each variety and plot, as they ripen. Static filtration for 24 hours and controlled fermentation at 14ºC for 20 days. Transferred at a specific gravity of under 1010 to keep the fine lees in the tank for a resting period until the final coupage.
