Sumoll - Garnatxa 2019

Sumoll - Garnatxa 2019

50% Sumoll - 50% Garnatxa.

 

A vintage that we can qualify as exceptional; for its health and balance. It was a rainy vintage with 799.9 mm and temperate. The autumn was very wet and filled the soil’s water capacity with a rainfall of 485 mm. Dry and cool winter. Good spring rains and thanks to the exposure of the farm to the wind helped us to prevent mildew. The summer was warm with occasional rains that helped the grapes to ripen well. We had a healthy harvest with a complete maturation of flavors and balance. The 2019 vintage at Can Sumoi was the latest compared to the two previous vintages. We saw it begin on August 20 with the Moscatel. We continued with the Macabeo and between the first and second week of September we harvested the grapes for the blending of

La Rosa 2019. The Sumoll had high acidity and very good balances; the Xarel-los were very ripe and had very good structure and a very good sanitary condition. We finished with the Malvasia harvest that has given us the aromatic and terpene profile of the new

Perfume 2019. We are recovering the Parellada from the Can Sumoi estate, the good work and work in the vineyard make the Can Sumoi plots produce more and more.

The estate is planted only with local grapes.

The soils of the estate were developed from copper-coloured, ochre and brown material which corresponds to the Montmell Formation, which is made up of sediment formed between 100 and 113 million years ago in the Cretaceous period; there are few soils as ancient as these on the Iberian Peninsula.

Recovery of 20 Ha of vineyard with an average age of 50 years.

Strong commitment to recover native varieties Parellada, Macabeu, sumoll, Garnatxa and Xarel·lo for all our wines.

Coupage 50% Sumoll - 50% Garnatxa.

Coupage of two complementary Mediterranean varieties, the Sumoll: wild fruits, rusticity, finesse, electric / acidic; with the Garnatxa: red fruits, roundness, elegance, silky, an excellent blend.

Our project is based on respect for the environment, natural winemaking and biodynamics

We grow 100% organic and biodynamic

The Can Sumoi vineyards were covered with natural fertilizer, they were worked with expert and careful hands; and recovered to make natural high-altitude wines. Management of the forest and the wildlife was also carried out to recuperate the biodiversity. The Can Sumoi wines were born in 2017

Vineyards with spontaneous vegetation covers, which give biodiversity, fertility and life to the soil. We do the short pruning. Use of herbal as herbal medicine to minimize the use of copper and sulfur. Control of lobesia botrana due to sexual confusion. Maturation controls prior to the harvest. Manual harvest and all pressed in the cellar.

We also eamwork with local farmers, organic certificates.

Our mission at Can Sumoi is the production of natural high altitude wines with the least intervention in all viticulture and winemaking processes. Manual harvest and all pressed in the cellar.

Manual harvest and all pressed in the cellar.

Production of pure wines following the minimum intervention protocol without oenological or sulfur additives. Native yeasts.
