About Celler Finca Parera: Fourth generation farmers since 1892, organic winegrowers since 1999 and biodynamic winemakers since 2013. Jordi Parera and Ruben Parera take care of different small plots of vineyard, along with other ancient cultures cherries, almonds, olives and vegetables garden. All with a small production of honey from their own bees.
Finca Parera is located in the upper Penedes region Penedès Montserratí in the village of Sant Llorenç d’Hortons, a historic area of quality Xarel·lo production which is characterised by its calcareous clay soils. Rubén converted his family’s 10h estate from organic to biodynamic farming, continuing the natural process into the cellar while applying the same practice to their cherries, almonds, olives, and vegetables, obtaining the rather grueling Demeter certification on their first visit.
Devoted to the green cover, compost and ancestral practices, they try to express the full potential of their terroir, foster the landscape, take care of the soil and close vital circles.
Vineyard : Sant Llorenç d’Hortons is around 300 m high, in the Alt Penedès Montserratí. Old Xarel·lo vineyards from the “La Plana”, “La Lengua del Pozo”, “El Anfiteatro” and “La viña de Pepe” plots along with the “Las Abejas” and “La Malvasia” vineyards.
Winemaking : 80% Xarel lo and a blend of Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Malvasia de Sitges, Parellada and Garnatxa Blanca. Made in a natural way, with a manual harvest in 250 kg containers. Entry of the grape with 30% rapa and all the skin to a stainless steel vat for maceration / infusion at low temperature. After a few days the spontaneous fermentation begins, and without moving the hat or stirring the wine, the fermentation progresses. Aging inside the vat until spring, where the wine is pressed. Bottled without any intervention or addition, on a descending moon.
Precipitations and cloudy appearance may appear, denoting respectful processing and are a good sign of authenticity.
Description: A skin contact blend of mostly Xarel-Lo and other indigenous varieties, aged in concrete. This vintage shows all its aromatic potential, with ripe white fruit and marked floral notes. In the mouth, it unfolds with lightness and honesty, with a fresh and pleasant finish.
