Vineyard

Grapes are sourced from 3 sites planted with Sumoll ove caly and limestone in 1950, 1999 and 2001. Sumoll was quite popular in the past but the growers started digging it up in favour of easier growing and more productive varietals. Nowadays just about 200 hectares remain planted in Catalunya

Viticulture 

Viticulture is certified organic. No herbicides, pesticides nor synthetic products are used. The vineyards are not irrigated and are worked as little as possible to encourage the growth of natural cover crops.

Vinemaking

Grapes are hand harvested, de-stemmed and crushed. Fermented with native yeast and aged in concrete for 3 months. The wine is bottled without using finning agents, clarification or cold stabilization

Tasting Notes

Sus Scrofa is a lighter style of red, similar to a Pinot Noir but with the structure of a Nebbiolo. Red fruits and lavender aromas underlying Mediterranean dried herbs and wet chalk.
