Produced by Anna & Toni Carbó of La Salada in the Alt Penedès region, south west of Barcelona. This wine is made using Macabeu & Xarel-lo grapes from thirty year old vines, grown in clay-calcarious soil at 250m above sea level. 50% of the Macabeu harvest goes through carbonic maceration, the rest are directly pressed into stainless steel tanks where it ferments with indigenous yeasts spontaneously for seven months. The La Salada project is passionate about recovering and protecting the native grapes planted by their grandparents some eighty years ago.
