Entre Vinyes was created by the couple; Maria & Pep. The vineyards have old vines and are run organically with their father-in-law as the responsible chap in the vineyards. In the winery, the wines ferment naturally in temperate steel tanks. From the year 2018, the couple has finally been able to afford to build their own winery, and the elegant wines have a bright future ahead.
‘Oniric’ is a word in Catalan to describe a ‘dreamer.’ They liked this idea as this project really stemmed from a dream to take over and rescue these stunning old parcels and old vines that had belonged to their family. As for the symbolism of the birds, which appear on all their labels: first, birds in the vineyards are a sign of life, a sign of a balanced ecosystem and a reward for farming honestly and correctly. Secondly, as they finally now have their own space where they make the wines, they liken the grapes now having their own winery/ home just as birds have their nests. The grapes were destemmed and saw 6 hours of skin contact prior to being pressed. The wine is transferred to steel tanks where fermentation lasts around 20 days, after which the wine stays on its fine lees for 6 months. In this time it is left to undergo a partial malolactic fermentation, nothing is blocked. Bottled with a small sulphite addition. Lightly filtered.
The grapes come primarily from an old forest vineyard called ‘Clariana’ in the heart of the Baix Penedés region where the soils are generally very poor, leading to low yields but a great concentration in the grapes. These old bush vines are surrounded by rich biodiversity, encouraging a natural balance in the vineyard that finds its way into the wines. Entre Vinyes Oniric Rosat has pleasant aromas of fresh red berries and flowers with hints of fresh herbs. In the mouth, it is fresh with a nice redcurrant, fine balance and mineral finish. Try together with dishes with green items, white fish, shellfish and light meat dishes.
