Amphora Gris 2021

A 100% xarel·lo natural wine, organic and made in clay amphorae

The versatility of the xarel·lo variety allows us to make this natural single-varietal wine, unique, surprising and radically different from traditional wines made from this grape. Together with Amphora Roja, they were our first natural wines of spontaneous fermentation in amphorae.

A creation of winemakers Marta and Maria Elena inspired by the discovery of clay ovens at the Iberian settlement site on our Les Valls-Les Torres estate. Perhaps the first wine to connect directly with the bygone civilisations that populated today’s vineyards in the Penedès.

Tasting Note

Sight

Pale pearly yellow.

Nose

Smooth, with notes of toasted almonds and a hint of milk.

Mouth

In the mouth it is dual faceted, rustic and full-bodied. We find almonds in the final step in the mouth and with a long aftertaste.

“Lime peel and honeyed fruit, touch of dried apricot, quite shouldered in the nose with a good hit of oxidized, nutty notes. Balanced palate, good orchard fruit grip and structure.”

Miquel Hudin, Journalist

Varieties

Made 100% with the xarel·lo variety, grown organically and biodynamically in our vineyards in the Penedès.

Elaboration

We make the pied de cuve in the vineyard to obtain the indigenous yeasts from the grapes themselves. The grapes are harvested by hand and in small boxes to avoid oxidation of the grapes. Arrival at the winery and gentle pressing. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation takes place in common clay amphorae, the porosity of which causes hyper-oxidation that precipitates all oxidisable substances, leaving a clean, crystalline wine.

Wine made from biodynamically grown grapes and with minimal intervention. Natural wine. No added sulphites.

Vegan friendly wine.

How to pair this organic and natural wine

You can pair this wine with seafood, rice dishes, grilled or baked fish.

Recommended serving temperature between 10 and 12°C.

When to enjoy it

A special wine requires a special moment. That moment that only you know how to create and enjoy alone or in company. Here, the important thing is to savour and let yourself be transported by the experience.

    For me, one of the best natural wine made in Spain, clear and pure
