About Celler 9+ : Moisès Virgili makes wines without additives or preservatives, from vineyards grown in organic agriculture located in La Nou de Gaià, in the region of El Tarragonès. He doesn’t use sulfites, ascorbic, stabilisers or clarifiers.
Vinification: Old Carthusian – as the Xarel·lo variety is called in the lower Gaià area – grown in organic farming and located in La Nou de Gaià, in the municipality of Tarragona, about 4 km in a straight line to the Mediterranean Sea. The sea breeze in the summer months begins to blow around ten in the morning and protects the vines from excess heat that allows a magnificent and constant ripening of the grapes, avoiding over ripening. The soils are generally low-fertile sandy loam. Once the grapes are harvested, they are skimmed and stored in stainless steel tanks to begin fermentation and maceration. The duration of fermentation with the skins is 20 days between 14 and 15ºC. Once the maceration is over, the grapes are pressed, separating low-pressure wine from high-pressure wine called “press wine”. This low pressure wine is intended for making Mèdol Selecció wine. Once the process is complete, they are removed from the lees (approx after 9 months) for smoothness and fat. No clarifiers or stabilizers are added. The wine is bottled with a small percentage of lees to improve the evolution of the wine over time, it is advisable to decant the wine to remove them.
