Clàssic Penedès 

Clàssic Penedès – Ancestral Method 

The three main features of a Clàssic Penedès are:

  • 100% Ecologic — traditional ecological farming methods and techniques
  • 100% Penedès — product with its own identity, enhancing product from Penedès 
  • 100% Reserva — always a minimum of 15 months in the cellar

L’Infiltrat Ancestral by Finca Can Gallego a unique coupage of the world:

  1. Xarel•lo
  2. Macabeu
  3. Sumoll

Ancestral Method – Sparkling Rosé Wine produced by spontaneous fermentation.

The Ancestral Method is likely that this was the first method developed for making effervescent sparkling wine.

  1. Making the base wine 
  2. Transforming the base wine (still wine with RS ‘residual sugar’) into an effervescent / sparkling wine.

The secondary fermentation (prise de mousse) occurs in bottles without addition of sugar (no tirage liqueur or expedition liqueur).

The ‘prise de mousse’ is stopped simply by yeast cell depletion. 

Why do I drink Clàssic Penedès for breakfast? Doesn’t everyone?
