Suprem Methode Ancestrale Pet Nat
- Suprem is a natural sparkling wine. Enjoy it while you experience one of the earliest forms of sparkling winemaking: the ancestral method.
- Most sparkling wines are produced by a second fermentation (such as champagne) or by the addition of carbon dioxide in a tank (such as prosecco).
- Suprem is unique as it’s a sparkling wine with minimum handling.
- The Garnacha is sourced from the province of Tarragona in Catalonia.
Varietal Composition: White Garnacha
Elaboration: The ancestral method consists of bottling the wine partway through its primary fermentation, trapping the CO2 in the bottle. When the desired level of CO2 is reached, the wine is chilled and disgorged, but no expedition liqueur (sugar) is added.
Tasting Notes: Straw-colored wine with generous bubbles. Wide range of aromas, including flowers, white and tropical fruits. Broad palate, certainly fresh and fruity, with a very long and pleasant aftertaste.
Today, the Qualified Designation of Origin Priorat is one of the world’s most prestigious wine-producing regions. Priorat is one of only two regions in Spain with the prestigious DOCa designation, the other being Rioja. The name Priorat comes from the word priory, a salute to the dedicated Carthusian monks who were cultivating grapes in the region as far back as the 12th century.
