Hand harvested in October during the early morning with yields of 1 kg per vine, dropping manually the destemmed grapes directly in to the buried 200 litre clay amphoras which are buried in the ground between vineyard rows where the wine is fermented and spends the winter right in the middle of the vineyard. Spontaneously fermentation with native yeasts that come from the soil in the vineyard, an important element that will mark and difference the wine's character, maceration takes place with the skins during 10 days, then the wine is pressed and returned to the amphoras where it will rest during the following 5 months. Afterwards the wine is taken and stored in the winery. Bottled in May 2014. 100% Terroir expression. Total production of 250 Bottles.
Sicus Terrers Mediterranis is the Project of Eduard Pie, a young viticultor that belongs to the new generation of young wine makers, perfectionist, enthusiast, talented and most of all innovative and restless. Based in Bonastre a small village in the Baix Penedès in the province of Tarragona where the family owned winery has been growing vines for more than 100 years intended for the bulk wine market until a few year when Eduard took charge of the winery and renovated it in order to produce good quality wines. Today Eduard cultivates 18 acres of family owned and also rented vineyards, he works with indigenous varieties alone and his wines are organically grown and amphora fermented, some of which are buried in the vineyard. He uses small amounts of sulfur only at key stages.
