D.O. Conca de Barberà (Catalonia)
Jordi Llorens Blan 5.7 is a white wine produced by Celler Jordi Llorens in Blancafort, Conca de Barberà.
In 2008, Jordi Llorens opened the winery that bears his name. It was now his turn to run the business of his family, who had always been dedicated to the cultivation of vines. He intended to produce organic wines with the aim of exclusively making quality wines, respecting the surroundings to the maximum extent. From the production of the family vineyard, only 10% is used for their wines.
Jordi Llorens' wines reflect the combination of tradition and modernism, with an ecological work process that aims for quality and health, both for the environment and for people. With an average yield of 1kg of grapes per vine, these are cultivated within the parameters of biodynamics. The vineyard is located in a Mediterranean climate that is slightly cool, due to the altitude and the distance from the sea (35km).
Jordi Llorens Blan 5.7 is a wine without D.O. that is made from maccabeu. It is planted on calcareous and mudstone soils, at 420 metres of altitude. Once they have been manually harvested and macerated for a week, they begin the fermentation process in stainless steel deposits with local yeasts. Here, they are left for 6 months on their fine lees. Without added sulphur dioxide.
