Notes from Skurnik Wines:
The 400-hectare estate of Can Sumoi sits at six hundred meters of altitude in the Serra de l’Home range in the Penedès. Its 350-year-old farmhouse and stone walls accommodate thirty hectares of old Montonega, Xarel-lo and Sumoll vines; stands of oak and white pine shade the rest of the surface. The vines are cultivated on limestone soils in certified-organic fashion and the resulting wines are produced without additives, stabilization or filtration, and minimal added sulphur. They show low alcohol and refreshingly brisk acidity. We begin with a still white Xarel-lo and two ancestral-method sparklers: one white from Montònega and a delicious rosé of Sumoll.
