Els Bassots is 100% Chenin Blanc, hand harvested and then macerated on-skins in Tinajas (Spanish amphora) for 15 days. Once pressed, matured for a further 6 months in Amphora and then bottled. Stonefruit, green apple, lemon-lime citrus, this one's got a nicely rounded out palate and good fruit weight to it too. Beautiful.
Escoda - Sanahuja wines are from dry-grown, ancient bush vines on limestone soils, in the foothills of the Tossal Gros national park (Conca de Barbera, 1 1/2 hours Southwest of Barcelona, Spain). Joan Ramon Escoda, founder of the famous Bar Brutal in Barcelona, and his wife Mari Carme Sanahuja, make all their wines in tinajas (Spanish clay amphora), which are then fed down into their undergound cellar, all by gravity. Never rushed to bottle and all made without any added sulphites, fining or filtration, these wines are pure, fruitful and energetic, and amazing examples of what natural wine is all about.
