Old Vine (50 year old) Spanish rose made from 85% Garnacha and 15% Trepat. Expect strawberry, raspberry and redcurrent. A medium rose that’s fresh but perfectly pairs with rich salads (try with beatroot and goats cheese salad for a tasty treat).
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.
