VINEYARDS AND WINE
Vines grown in organic farming, located in Nou de Gaia, a town of Tarragona 4km straight to the Mediterranean Sea. Soils are generally sandy franc-low fertility.
The grapes rippen perfectly thanks to the warm weather and the marinade; the marinade is the sea breeze early in the morning blowing in our vineyards, avoiding excess heat in grapes and causing a sanitizing effect on the vineyard.
Once harvested the grapes are hand-filled with skids and stainless steel tanks, seeding yeast to start fermentation. The duration of maceration is 7 days at a temperature of 22 to 24°C. Once maceration is over we press the must, separating the wine of low pressure from the high pressures wine, called “wine press” which is dismissed for Mèdol Selecció.
The wine that remains in stainless steel tanks is decanted once a week. The duration of aging in lees for harvest 2016 is 8 months. The variety is a 100% Sumoi. We should mention that we have not added any clarifiers, or stabilizers, nor sulfur or substitutes.
This wine is free of added sulfites, it only has grapes, more natural, impossible!
Cherry colour, very intense. Evokes the smell of red fruits (cherries, strawberries…) and notes of herb and skin grape. In the mouth we find a lot of structure, intensity of red fruits, good acidity, marked and interesting tannins and a peculiar aftertaste. We tell the Sumoi Selecció “the anti-Parker wine” because it does not stand out in any of the virtues that the prescriber looks for in his favorite wines and this makes it unique and different. It is lack of added sulfites and remains of sugars makes it a very suitable wine for people who are sensitive to sulphurous (antiseptic and conservative) or sensitive to the consumption of alcoholic drinks.
