LA PELL

THE LEGACY OF OUR ANCESTORS

We elaborate this biodynamic vineyard wine 100% manually, just like our grandparents did. We destem, press and ferment the must and the skins of more than 20 ancestral and unique varietals in jars that are handmade with clay collected from the estate. La Pell is the result of the love and respect we feel for the winemaking tradition of this land and for our ancestors. It makes up the soul of our winery.

CLARETE

DRINK HISTORY

This wine was awarded by La Guia de Vins de Catalunya in 2017, but the biggest prize for us was being able to make the traditional claret that the Orpella family drank every day. With their trust, we have been able to experiment and ferment more than 20 ancestral varietals with their own skins to make this wine full of history.

CLARETE
  • Wine awarded “Best Heritage Wine” by La Guia de Vins de Catalunya in 2017, for containing the liquid history of our viticulture.
  • In 2017, we wanted to honor the Orpella family by making the traditional wine that they used to drink every day.
  • In 2017 we made a blend of 20 of the Vinyet grape varietals. In 2019, we mixed 22 varietals, and our goal in 2020 is to ferment all 24 varietals together.

PARCEL·LA LES PEDRISES D’IVARS

WHITE
  • A limited series of 200 to 400 numbered bottles.
  • In 2018, we began to work on this vineyard, planted in 1935, in Ivars de Noguera, with more than 9 cultivated varietals.
  • Two of the main varietals are Trobat Blanc and Macabeu, a combination that we love because it creates a perfect balance. Furthermore, in this vineyard there are Malvasías, Muscat of Alexandria and even Albana Bianca, a traditional varietal from Emilia Romagna.
  • During its elaboration, we have made a part of the fermentation with its skins, seeking for subtleness. We let malolactic take its course, and afterwards the wine ages in 34 liter crystal demijohns in order to keep its purity.
  • Manual harvest and refrigeration of the grapes at 6°C (42.8°F) until processing in order to maintain all its freshness.
  • Fresh, pure and mineral. Hints of white flowers and white fruit combined with Mediterranean herbs.

CICLIC

CELEBRATING LIFE

Life is made up of cycles. Each cycle helps us improve, grow and evolve. This wine is a tribute to all of them.

The Cíclics are single vineyard wines made with the best White and Red Grenache grapes from Vinya Núria, and are aged in the bottle for years so to evolve and accentuate their complex variety of fresh and mineral nuances, closing the cycle once the bottle has been opened.

NATURAL

NOTHING TO ADD

At times, not following the rules can lead you to make great discoveries such as this one: a 100% natural wine, without sulphites. We make it with the Grenache grapes from Vinya Núria’s specific plot that yields the grape with the most color and structure, to enhance its natural preservatives and avoid any additives.

WHITE
  • Limited edition of 2,600 numbered bottles.
  • First made in 2020, as a result of the need to produce a white wine from our core varietal without the use of sulphites. It is for this reason, that this wine is created using a style between an orange wine and a traditionally vinified white wine.
  • 100% White Grenache from the plot closest to the Noguera Ribagorçana river.
  • A third of the skins in fermentation with wild yeast, in a stainless steel tank.
  • Wild white, of a celery color and slightly turbid. Once oxygenated, it shows aromas of fennel and resin, green apple and a crunchy and fibrous texture. On the palate, it brings memories of candied citrics and an acidity that lasts. Good texture thanks to the skins, combined with a great balance between an orange style and a traditional white. Fresh and saline in the finish.
  • 3 to 4 month aged on its lees. Natural malolactic completed.

SOLERA

A SWEET WINE FIT FOR A GALA

The secret of this wine, awarded Best Sweet Wine 2020 by La Guia de Vins de Catalunya, is revealed by its own name. We select the Grenache grapes with the highest concentration and the best ripening from the Vinya Núria vineyard, and expose them to the sun for their dehydration. This way, we manage to concentrate the nectar and transform it into a naturally sweet wine.

SWEET WINE
  • Wine made with the highest concentrated White Grenache with the best ripening from the Vinya Núria vineyard.
  • Terroir composed by gravels and sand from the Noguera Ribagorçana river.
  • We carry out a partial defoliation on the fields to expose the clusters to the maximum amount of sun and dehydratate the grapes. This is how we concentrate sugars naturally.
  • Partial fermentation of the grape with wild yeasts and with the skins. The process is stopped by cooling down and filtering to avoid the use of sulphites.

  • It goes through the “solera” and “criaderas” dynamic ageing system. After this 2-year oxidation process, it is bottled with a slight filtration allowing it to maintain all of its character.
