£10.12 (Inc. VAT bot. 75 cl.)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The one ancestral sparkling produced with the Montonega strain of the Parellada white grape, the 2017 Ancestral Montonega bubbled away energetically when uncorked. The grape is planted at 600 meters altitude and has very high acidity; the grapes ripen to 10.5% to 11% alcohol and produce a more aerial, light, easy and clean wine. It was fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and no additives, including sulfur. It has some volatility, with some six atmospheres of pressure, and six grams of residual sugar. The acidity clearly pulls the wine up. 10,000 bottles produced in this first vintage.
Between 8ºC and 10ºC
Fermented with indigenous yeasts. Aged in bottle before disgorgement.
Estimated transit time: 3-4 working days.
