Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Sicus Cartoixà Brisat is a white 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 Cartoixà Brisat is a wine made from Xarello from the farm El Corral del Gener. It is over 70 years old, located at 275 metres of altitude, 10 kilometres from the sea, and planted on shallow calcareous soils with little organic matter.

They are manually harvested and placed boxes. The grapes are selected in the vineyards. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes are cooled at 2ºC, they are destemmed and they go through a pre-fermentation maceration for 10 days in 200-litre ceramic amphorae. After this, the grapes are pressed and fermented in the same amphorae. When the fermentation ends, it is left to stand for 5 months in stainless steel deposits with its fine lees.

 

Sicus Cartoixà Brisat is a mature, ample and long wine. The aromas of ripe white fruit, Mediterranean forest and dry flowers stand out. Its unctuousness in the mouth softens the rusticity of this wine with so much personality.
