Sparkling wine made in the traditional method from Spain,Conca Del Riu Anoia.
‘’de Nit’’ is a blend of grape varieties Macabeu , Xarel·lo , Parellada and Monastrell . The grapes come from 3 different fincas: La Plana, La Barbera and El Llac. The Xarel·lo and Parellada grapes grow on clay and slate soil on La Plana. The Parellada grape variety grows in La Barbera and the Monastrell variety in El Llac. All three fincas work with ecological guidelines.
The harvest is done entirely by hand and after being transported to the bodega, the grapes are first gently pressed. The first fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. The different grape varieties are processed separately from one another. Once blended, the wine is bottled, where it ferments and matures for 15 months.
A pale, subdued and elegant pink color with clean, pure and almost crystalline aromas of light citrus, red flowers, white fruit, and a touch of cassis. The clean nose evolves with a smooth, voluminous and fruity texture, pleasant freshness and fine bubbles. Driven by a very good balance.
In Catalonia, DO status was first created in 1999, and it became the first regional production area in Spain, which united all vineyards not included in any of the 11 existing DOs at that time. The capital of Catalonia is Barcelona, the second largest city in Spain with one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean. Its seaside location has certainly contributed to the development of local winemaking. Catalonia has a wide variety of winemaking traditions. It is believed that the skills of viticulture were first introduced by the Phoenicians and Greeks around 400 BC. e. The Romans then expanded viticulture and the industry flourished until the Moorish occupation. Then the vineyards were abandoned or given for other purposes. Later Christians revived viticulture in the territories adjacent to the monasteries. Until the end of the 18th century, wine and spirits were among the most important exports in the region. Since then, Catalonia has established itself as a dynamically developing wine region.
