Viticulture: Organic (certified) Vineyards: The grapes come
primarily from an old forest vineyard called ‘Clariana’
in the heart of the Baix Penedés region where the soils are generally very poor, leading to low yields but a great concentration in the grapes. These old bush vines are surrounded by a rich biodiversity, encouraging a natural balance in the vineyard that finds its way into the wines.
Vinification: The grapes
were destemmed and saw 6 hours of skin contact prior to being pressed. The wine is transferred to steel tanks where fermentation lasts around 20 days, after which the wine stays on its fine lees for 6 months. In this time it is left to undergo a partial malolatic fermentation, nothing is blocked. Bottled
with a small sulphite addition. Unfined, unfiltered
Other: ‘Oniric’ is a word in Catalan to describe a ‘dreamer.’ They liked this idea as this project really stemmed from a dream to take over and rescue these stunning old parcels and old vines that had belonged
to their family. As for the symbolism of
the birds, which appear on all their labels: first, birds in the vineyards are a sign of life, a sign of a balanced ecosystem and a reward for farming honestly and correctly. Secondly, as they finally now have their own space where they make the wines, they liken the grapes now having their own winery/ home just as birds have their nests.
