The first part of the must got to settle at 13ºC during 24 hours, fermentation during 25 days at 14°C. Blended in December 2010. Fined with bentonite, filter, stabilized and bottled in January 2011. Bright yellow colour with soft green tones, powerful aroma of a mix of fruits, apple and pear as well as slight notes of citrus, some exotic ripe fruits as well, full of fruit sensations. The mouth is tasty slightly creamy, broad, quite full bodied and with good acidity which gives this very well made wine a beautiful structure.
The winery of Coma d’en Bonet in the small Terra Alta town of Gandesa, decided early to adhere to organic wine making. One that is made from grapes produced by using ecological agriculture, all grapes used come from vineyards grown without chemical fertilizers or synthetic pesticides (fungicide, insecticide or herbicide), and therefore no residues of these substances are influencing the final product.
They use only organic fertilizers and natural minerals. All the vineyards are cultivated according to the guidelines of organic farming and under control of the CCPAE (Catalan Council of Ecological Agricultural Production). This certification ensures that products always have been prepared following the rules of organic farming, which have been controlled in the entire process of PRODUCTION, PROCESSING and PACKAGING.
