Their blanc de noirs contains a significant amount of Cariñena in 2018, so it is mentioned on the label of the 2018 País-Cariñena Phoenix Ferment from their Single Ferment Series, wines that continue to be sourced from more than one parcel or vineyard site and are (co-fermented) “in one single ferment.” In the (interesting) words of winemaker Derek Mossman, “the idea is to make something like a live recording, hence without tweaking nor dubbing afterward and with multiple microphones”! The 2017 was quite successful, so they picked some more País from Sauzal and some Cariñena from the Purapel vineyard. They pressed the whole clusters, and the only available press was quite big, so they needed to use no less than 4,500 kilos of grapes. It’s surprisingly floral and aromatic, fresh and clean, with a vibrant palate, focused and delicious. 2,871 bottles were filled in October 2018.
