Sergio's Pick

This is quite the achievement for a producer that was only in his 3rd vintage at the time. Gorgeous notes of white peach, green apple skin, orange blossoms, and cardamom leap from the glass. The palate is crisp and vibrant with an energetic acidity that permeates through its medium bodied juicy-creamy texture. Its mineral-driven style shines before descending on a bone dry, refreshing finish with salty and floral exit notes.

Growing up, Alvaro remembers looking out his window at vineyards and after a career in IT as a software developer he quit in 2017 to return to his love - wine!

Starting with 500 bottles his first vintage, he remains true to making live wines with healthy grapes. The vineyards are grown biodynamically and worked by hand only. Harvest is in small boxes to preserve the fruit. The cellar is located in a typical Catalan country house 'Masia' where wine has been produced for over 400 years. Only native yeast and no intervention in the cellar. Very little to no sulfur is added.
