100% Xarel·lo from the Fassina vineyard (55 years old) in Sant Sebastià dels Gorgs - and this year he decided to incorporate grapes from the Molinet vineyard (61 years old), also located in Sant Sebastià.
Three separate harvests were completed in August and September, each approximately a week apart. The first two aged in demijohn for 6 months, and the 3rd in 400 and 500L barrels for 6 months before blending. Zero added sulfites.
About the Domaine:
Ferran Lacruz farms 8 hectares of vines in Catalonia, in the small village of Sant Marti Sarroca, in the heart of the Penedès wine region. Ferran started this project with his first vintage of 2018. He works completely outside of any appellation, farms the grapes organically, and is not adding anything to any of the wines. All the grapes are hand-harvested, and nothing is filtered or fined. Ferran grew up in this part of Catalonia, and since being a small child was seduced by the landscape, natural beauty, and the important of wine producing in the culture. He studied tourism in college, which left him feeling unfulfilled. So, with a friend, he began to embark on the journey of becoming a winemaker, looking to produce clean natural wines that express his homeland with honesty.
