Characteristics of Cru Marí
Sicus Cru Marí is a sparkling wine without denomination of origin produced by the winery Sicus in Bonastre (Baix Penedés).
Sicus is the personal project of Eduard Pie, a young winegrower of the region who has wanted to reinterpret the area by reusing the native varieties. He uses production techniques that are respectful with the grapes and the environment, without using herbicides or pesticides.
The vineyards of Sicus are located at the foot of Massís de Bonastre (south-west of D.O. Penedés), in a mountainous area next to the sea, surrounded by olive trees and forming the typical Mediterranean landscape. The soils of the area are shallow, with scarce humidity and little organic matter. The climate, which is clearly Mediterranean, behaves differently each year. This distinguishes certain shades that are reflected in the personality of each wine.
Sicus Cru Marí is a wine made from Xarello from the farm La Caseta. It is located 6 km from the sea, at 180 metres of altitude, on shallow clayey-calcareous soils with little organic matter. Each vine yields 2 kg of grapes.
They are manually harvested and placed boxes. The grapes are selected in the vineyards. Once in the winery, they ferment in stainless steel deposits with native yeasts and temperature control, 12.5ºC for 25 days. After the first fermentation, the base wine rests for 10 months in the same deposits. The second fermentation in the bottle is carried out with a minimum ageing of 4 years. After disgorgement, no sugar or liqueur d'expédition is added.
Sicus Cru Marí is a sparkling wine. Mature, long and dry. The notes of the ageing stand out above the varietal ones. An amazing salty finish that enhances its minerality.
