Characteristics of La Salada Tinc Set Ancestral
La Salada Tinc Set Ancestral is a sparkling wine produced by La Salada in the Penedés. This is a personal project by Toni Carbo, winemaker at Mas Candí, and his wife Anna.
The grapes used to produce this wine come from vineyards planted by the grandfather of Toni, grown on calcareous-clay soils. The vineyards have always been cultivated in an organic way, i.e without the use of herbicides or pesticides.
La Salada Tinc Set Ancestral is a sparkling wine produced using the ancestral method, using the native varieties of Macabeu and Xarel.lo. The grapes are chilled at around 3-4ºC, with the two varieties left to ferment with their own yeasts until the optimum density for bottling. The final fermentation in the bottle lasts for 8 months.
This is a fruity yet dry sparkling wine, easy to drink and refreshing.
Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
