Orange Censurat 2021 | Bodegas Clandestina
✔ 10% When purchasing 12 or more bottles
100% Carignan Blanc, from young vines (6 years old).
The grapes are pressed to stainless steel tanks and ferment with indigenous yeast in contact with the skins for two weeks. Manual punchdowns are performed once or twice a day another two weeks after fermentation finishes, still in contact with the skins, so 30 days total skin contact. The wine is then racked to 160 liter amphoras where it ages for 5 months. The wine is unfined, unfiltered and has zero addition of sulfur.
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.
