Notes:
 
Light and crispy, two weeks skin-contact. This single vineyard wine is located at the top of a very rocky ridge called La Sierra de Can Rossell (or La Serra in Catalan). La Serra is a southwest-facing, 1ha plot planted in 2008; it is surrounded by olive trees and river stones are prominent throughout its clay-calcaire soil. Two weeks’ worth of maceration, 80% destemmed, with 20% of the fruit done whole-cluster and foot-pressed. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, left in tank until bottling. Unfined, unfiltered, no SO2 added. First produced in 2018. Herbal, subtle, shimmery with minerals, not nearly as weighty and round as Xarel.lo in the Penedès can be.

 

Toni Carbó and Anna Serra are the hardworking folks behind Celler La Salada in the Penedès; Toni founded the winery in 2012 after working exclusively on the Mas Candí wines with his longtime friend and partner Ramón Jané. (He’s still one half of Mas Candí, but La Salada is the individual project on which he and Anna work solo.)
