2018 Mendall La Thierrica de Barrí



Laureano Serres is considered one of Catalunya’s natural wine pioneers.
It has always been essential to Laureano to farm organically. It was forgetting to add SO2 in the 2002 vintage that opened his mind to the possibilities of wines without additions. He now farms six hectares scattered around El Pinell and Terra Alta ranging from 170 to 500 metres above sea level. From a single old barrel gifted to Laureano by his friend Thierry Puzelat. This is a blend of Garnacha from a twenty year old vineyard in El Pinell de Brai and Carinyena from a thirty five year old parcel in the Terra Alta. The Garnacha spent a couple of days on skins, while the Carinyena was given a direct press. Both fermented in cuve and were moved to the old barrique for a short élevage. The result is a wine full of wild, brambly fruit and fistfuls of spice with a wonderful lick of acid on the finish. Tutto Wines
