Les Voranes 2018, is the first vintage of the second sparkling wine of the intimate and family
project from Ton Mata and Encarna Castillo, BUFADORS CELLER. We have produced 4.749 bottles of Les Voranes 2018. The name Les Voranes, means the vineyards that are very close to the cellar, in Can Rossell de la Serra – Torrelavit – Alt Penedès. Are two vineyards of Xarel·lo and Macabeu, with moderately calcareous soils of frank-clay texture.
Les Voranes, is a Brut Nature sparkling Wine, made following a very special "interpretation" ofthe Traditional Method. Looking, in an extreme way, a very purist relationship with the "terroir".In this way, the second fermentation in the bottle is carried out with fermenting must from the vineyard itself. There are no added elements, no sugar, no commercial yeasts, no fining agents, no sulfites. In turn, it has not been filtered, nor stabilized by cold.
We believe a lot in bottle aging with the presence of “lees” and “carbonic” as enriching and protective natural elements of the wine that participate in the evolution and complexity of its aromas and flavors. For this reason, we have dared to produce a sparkling wine without added sulphites, with four years and nine months of aging. All aging is carried out with a natural cork stopper and the "disgorging" is done manually without freezing.
Vintage 2018, warm and extremely rainy, exceeds 750 l / m2, an average of over 500 l / m2.
Xarel·lo stays with skin contact for two hours before pressing.
