Vins Petxina supports the environment and promotes the creation of organic wines and the transformation of conventional to organic vineyards. They are wines of little-known style, area or variety, each having their own unique personality. All the grapes come from the vines owned by the winery CELLER 9+, located around the Mediterranean village La Nou de Gaià, 5km far from the sea, close to Tarragona.
The vines are old and the viticulture is based on traditional techniques (following the lunar calendar), always putting quality first. “The vines are small and different. Some face the sea, others don’t. The soil is different from one row to another in the vineyard, but overall they are poor soils. We do a green harvest to reduce production and get more concentration and better maturity of the grapes. The area has a strong effect from the “marinada” (Mediterranean wind), cooling down the temperature and preventing it to rise over 31-32 ºC on the hottest days of the summer” and ensuring a lovely acidity in the wines.
This natural wine is only made with grapes – no added sulphites, spontaneous fermentation and a light filtering using paper – only the cleanest and healthier grapes can be used for a natural wine which is made without adding protective sulphur dioxide.
The wine ferments at low temperatures and rests on the lees for several months before bottling.
This results in a golden yellow colour, aromas and flavours of bruised orchard fruits and a distinct tingly tang of acidity.
