|Composition of the land
||The soils on the estate are calcareous and date back to the oldest period of the Penedès depression some 16 million years ago.The first layer comprises roots of up to 1 meter that live in the clay along with nutrients, organic matter and water. Second layer, from 1 meter down. This is where the plant meets the compact clays known locally as galera. Calcareous base rock encrusted with marine fossils.
||Biodynamic viticulture. A vineyard with spontaneous vegetation coverage which affords biodiversity, fertility and gives the soil a lot of life. We add manure from our animals, composted in the winter. We perform a short goblet pruning.
||The grapes enter the winery by gravity. At each stage, the atmosphere is controlled by dry ice. Slow pressing at low pressures. Static sedimentation at low temperatures. First fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.
||Assemblage and second fermentation in the bottle with a minimum ageing period of 18th months in a horizontal position. Disgorging date stated on the back label.
