Details
Can Sumoi is a project between life long friends Pepe Raventos (or our best selling Raventos I Blanc) and Francesc Escala. They work the farm biodynamically (certified organic) and the wines all undergo a natural fermentation with no fining or filtering. Made in the traditional method with no additives, stabilization or filtration. Harvested on August 24th (a leaf day) in small bins and underwent primary fermentation naturally with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks for 19 days. This was followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentation and batonnage for three months, twice per week.

"The 2018 Xarel.lo is also a lot fresher than the wine from 2017, a constant across the range here. The 2018 is cleaner and has more intensity and more expressive aromas than the 2017, and it also has more acidity and tastiness, with the electric and clean palate that I already found in the initial vintage. The 2017 has developed more Mediterranean aromas, hints of hay and straw and a touch of esparto grass, but here there is more citrus and even a minty touch. There is no deviation or oxidation; it was bottled unfiltered and with no added sulfur. It's lighter, with less structure, but it also has more freshness and better drinkability." 92 points Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate
