Maria Bernet Brut Nature 2013
Júlia Bernet Brut Nature Exsum Xarel·lo Vermell is a sparkling Corpinnat made with the Xarel·lo Rojo native variety by Júlia Bernet in Alt Penedès (Barcelona).
Júlia Bernet is a small winery whose owners Xavier Bernet and his wife Cristina decided to make their own wines in 2001, naming their project after their daughter. They produce mainly artisan, limited production sparkling wines that are 100% organic and they are part of Corpinnat, the collective brand that brings together some of the best sparkling wine producers in Penedès.
Júlia Bernet Brut Nature Exsum Xarel·lo Vermell comes from family vineyards that lie on the slopes of the Ordal mountain. A sharp slope with a microclimate and that gives the native Xarel·lo Vermell variety a unique personality. The vines are cultivated ecologically, avoiding any products that could harm the natural balance. The harvest is carried out manually and placed in small boxes.
Made in a slightly more experimental way, Júlia Bernet Brut Nature Exsum Xarel·lo Vermell is a sparkling wine that is nevertheless vinified according to the ancient method. In other words, it is bottled before the end of fermentation and without the addition of sulphur or liqueur.
Júlia Bernet Brut Nature Exsum Xarel·lo Vermell is a Corpinnat with an ancient character. And although theoretically a rosé, both by sight and by taste, it is actually much closer to a blanc de noirs.Strange irresistible beauty.
