Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The sparkling 2018 Ancestral Montonega was produced with the grapes from one plot of the Parellada strain cultivated in the high-altitude Pla de Manlleu of Penedès but is sold without appellation of origin. In this second vintage, the wine finished fermenting in bottle without problems and doesn't have the unfermented sugar that remained in 2017. I like it in this style much better (it was an accident last year, as they aim for dry wines). It's direct and fresh, with citrus and fennel notes and very good acidity. There are flavors reminiscent of the Mediterranean herbs you find on the property, with very fine bubbles and a sharp, fresh and mineral finish. This is an improvement over the wine from last year. 6,500 bottles produced.
Between 8ºC and 10ºC
Fermented with indigenous yeasts. Aged in bottle before disgorgement.
