Characteristics Terra 00 Chenin Blanc Lo Natural
Terra00 Chenin Blanc Lo Natural is a natural, clay-aged white wine made by the Terra 00 project with the Chenin Blanc variety in the D.O. Terra Alta (Catalonia).
Terra00 was set up in Vilalba dels arcs, in the heart of Terra Alta (southern Catalonia) with the aim of recovering the local essence in the most natural way, with minimal intervention and no artificial products. Creators Joan R. Bada and Josep Arrufat describe their wines as organic and human.
Terra00 Chenin Blanc Lo Natural is made from vines grown on calcareous soils following Terra Alta’s thousand-year-old winemaking tradition. To do this, they respect the biological cycles of the vineyard and ecologically cultivate the vines using biodynamic methods and no chemical products.
Once the Terra00 Chenin Blanc Lo Natural grapes have been manually harvested and selected, they are gently pressed and the resulting must ferments with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The wine then ages for 6 months in 1000-litre clay amphoras. Finally, it is bottled without artificially filtering or clarifying and with only the sulphites produced during fermentation.
Terra00 Chenin Blanc Lo Natural is a wine with a mineral character that, as its name “lo natural” suggests, is the most authentic expression of the grape, the land and the environment. A whole way of working that brings about a new generation of sensations.
