With a production of ~2000 bottles, this wine expresses the personality inherent to some over 75 year-old vines from the Massís del Garraf. It is a dry wine, mineral and saline. A Xarel·lo with mountain aromas.
The grapes for this 100% Xarel·lo come from 75-year-old vines planted on chalky soil in the Massís del Garraf, a protected mountain range to the southwest of Barcelona that straddles the Mediterranean Sea. The Xarel·lo is vinified with wild yeasts in 300 liter French oak barrels, 25% of which are new.
The name Cargol Treu Vi comes from the lyrics of a Catalan children's song:
Cargol treu banya, Puja a la muntanya. Cargol treu vi, Puja al muntanyí.
The passion of winemakers and farmers is infused into the soul of every wine. According to importer Núria Garrote-i-Esteve, their touch lends the most important and distinguishing factors to the final product. The important decisions of when to pick, how to treat the plans, how to prune, where to grow which varietals, how to blend them together - or decide not to. All of these choices bring humanity to wine production. In building her portfolio, Núria looks for wines that tell a story of place and of a vision. It's important that the producers she works with love what they do, and don't hesitate to pour their soul into the wines.
