About the Producer:
"The Suriol family has lived and made wine in the same masia, the Castell de Grabuac, in Penedès since the 15th century. They produce Cavas and still wines using traditional, non-interventionist methods, indigenous grape varieties vinified by parcel with native yeasts, local chestnut wood for barrel aging, and corks from the local forest. The results are some of the most complex and layered Penedès wines that we have tasted.
The Suriol estate is located in the village of Font Rubí in the Alt Penedès, just north of Vilafranca and west of Sant Sadurni d’Anoia, and a one-hour drive from Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea. Their 25 hectares of vineyards are divided up into 20 different microplots and surround the masia, and have been certified organic since 1996. They employ biodynamic practices as well, utilizing native plants for preparations. All Suriol Cavas are brut nature and vintage dated, and aged on the lees in bottle until order, with the disgorgement date noted on the back label.
Fruit for their Cava Rosat comes from two vineyards planted in 2008: “Mataró” for Monastrell, and “Els Lladoners” for Garnacha, typically in equal measure. The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented with native yeasts in steel vat with 6 hours of skin contact, raised in underground concrete tanks over the winter for natural malolactic fermentation, then disgorged to order after being bottle-aged at least 30 months. It is a rosé Cava of great finesse, with a delicate mousse and a lovely balance between elegant fruit and chalky minerality, perfect for tapas like cured meats and fish, olives, and cheeses."
