Celler Pardas Sumoll Rosat '21
Sumoll is a little-known variety native to Penedès, in northeastern Spain, and thankfully a small group of winegrowers in the region have continued to work with it. Once almost extinct, it has found new life with these dedicated producers. One of them, and arguably the finest producer of Sumoll, is Celler Pardas.
Celler Pardas began as a partnership between two friends, Ramon Parera and Jordi Arnan, who found and purchased a very special masía (Catalan farmhouse), called Can Comas, in Alt Penedès, surrounded by vineyards and agriculture. They have dedicated themselves to local grapes such as Xarel.lo and Sumoll but also produce fantastic wines from other varieties, with the goal of showing the clearest expression of each. These two are as committed as any one in the region to farming organically and producing wines of terroir.
The work starts in the vineyards of Finca Can Comas with Jordi. His practices are impeccable: dry-farming, no ploughing, and no use of chemicals or fertilizers. When Ramon takes over in the winery, his goal is to gently treat the grapes to let them express their terroir. Grapes are hand harvested in small crates, and no pumps are used, so everything flows by gravity. All the wines are fermented with native yeasts.
The rosé is made of 50% free-run juice and 50% one-day maceration. Like all other wines from Pardas, it is made from organic grapes and ferments spontaneously. Aged in stainless steel tanks, the wine offers bold black cherry and strawberry notes, along with vibrant acidity, freshness, and a delicately savory finish. Drink it on its own or pair it with a range of different foods. It’s incredibly versatile and delicious!
