The Wine: Clos Lentiscus Núria Cartoixà Vermell
Clos Lentiscus Núria Cartoixà Vermell 2018 is a monovarietal of Red Xarello, known in the area as Cartoixà Vermell, coming from the Vinya Martina, planted in 1976 on calcareous sandy soils. After pressing the grapes, the must begins alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts in 55-liter demijohns. Being a wine made by the ancestral method, the fermentation will end in the bottle, where it will rest for 12 months. It is a straw yellow wine with fine bubbles. On the nose, as soon as it is served, we find some slight notes of reduction that soon disappear, giving way to sweet apple and bakery notes. In the mouth it is fresh, fruity, with a good volume; a well-made natural wine that allows you to travel with each drink to those vineyards surrounded by Mediterranean forests in the natural area of Garraf.
The producer: Clos Lentiscus
The Clos Lentiscus belongs to a family of winegrowers whose objective is to capture the essence of the terroir with their wines. The family farm from the 14th century, surrounded by Mediterranean forests, facing south, is located in the Garraf Natural Park. The entire winery is organized following the principles of biodynamics. There, thanks to the sheep and his horse Ringo, and with the precious help of their bees, they manage to work the vineyards with respect and produce natural wines that today are one of the most interesting in Catalonia. In addition, Manel's generous and cheerful personality and his desire to share his knowledge are evident throughout his production.
The Region: Garraf
The Penedés is the largest wine-growing region in Catalonia. Given their size and the enormous variety of style of their wines, it is sometimes difficult to find common denominators among them. With the aim of grouping and delimiting terroirs with even characteristics, in 2015 a new map of subzones was approved that, after some recent modification, divides the Penedés wine region into 9 subzones with well-defined climates and soils. Among these areas, undoubtedly one of the most reputed and recognized is El Garraf.
The Massís (Massif) del Garraf is a large mass of calcareous rock located on the coastal strip, between the sea and the mountains. In these lands of austere landscapes that alternate between small hills (250-300 meters above sea level) and deep valleys, some of the most special wines of Catalonia are produced. The arable area is not too large, but it is very particular; the soils are poor and shallow, with the calcareous bedrock very present, making it difficult to retain water. The forests and the Mediterranean are the key elements that make up the character of the region's wines, and give a common personality to the wines from Massís and those from the richest and most productive sub-area of the Marina, which takes advantage of its more clayey soils for retain water from the rains.

What is natural wine
Natural winemaking has become a movement akin to a revolution, a nemesis of the industrialization and homogenization of wine in the last three decades. Natural winemakers are at the forefront of this movement, rejecting industrial winemaking techniques and the excessive use of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides or fertilizers in the vineyard. Perhaps even more importantly, natural wine should be seen as an agricultural product where agriculture is an essential part. Agricultural conditions, labor rights, sustainability and ethical practices throughout the supply chain are now at the center of the natural wine discourse.
Why should you try natural wine?
Natural wine is probably the most fascinating wine on the market. Discovering natural wines is made even more exciting by the fact that each vintage is different and has a different flavor. The non-interventionist winemaking approach, together with the best organic and biodynamic practices in the vineyards, give wines of unique character.
