2017 Autòcton Celler
|Grapes||Xarel lo Vermell, Malvasia de Sitges, Xarel lo, Macabeu|
Another absolute beauty from Albert, this white soars from the glass with wild herbs, white blossom and elegant citrus, Asian pear and nectarine fruits. In the mouth there is such gorgeous textured fruit, nectarine, fragrant lemon, chamomile and wild flowers. This is so persistent and intriguing, it would make a great accompaniment to summer vegetable tart or a salmon quiche., with smashed new potatoes. Drinking range: 2020 - 2025 L&S (Jun 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Albert Jané, who we (and many of our customers) know well from his Acústic Celler in Monsant, has some new (but very old) vineyards. He wrote to us in September 2016: 'I would like to show you my new project: Autòcton Celler (autòcton means local, indigenous, autochthonous). It is a project from a selection of the oldest vineyards of local varieties like Sumoll, Xarel lo, Xarel lo Vermell, Malvasia de Sitges, Subirat Parent, Macabeu... fermented in tank or big barrels or amphores in Mas Vilella which is a very old traditional Catalan house dated from XVI century.
'The area is 60 km in the south of Montsant and Priorat where I am living, it is table wines because part of the vineyards are part in DO Penedes and part of them are DO Tarragona, I don’t care about DO I am looking for very very exciting vineyards... in fact I am living in the old Masia with 4 chickens , 1 rooster, 3 dogs... just upstairs of the cellar... next time you come back I will show it.'
How could we resist!
The first releases are two exceptional and original whites with the constitution of Pouilly Fuissés, but with a different character and expression.
Albert also has exciting wine projects in Priorat with Ritme Cellar and in Monsant with Acustic Cellar.
From Catalonia’s most interesting vineyards – a brace of Priorats and a long time favourite from Montsant, the region that almost doughnuts Priorat. Great blends of Grenache and Carignan, of a similar weight to Rioja but with less reliance of wood, some plump blackcherry fruit and touch of tertiary spice. Lovely winter warmers.
