Cellar La Salada Description

Varietal: Parellada, Macabeu, Xarel.lo

Color: White

Farming Practice: Biodynamic

Biodynamic. 45% Parellada, 50% Macabeu, 5% Xarel.lo.

Direct pressing and co-ferment for one month inside a cairons, a large, old-school Catalan underground fermenter lined with tile, used by previous generations of La Salada family and recovered in 2018. Kept in the cairons for four months’ aging after ferment. 5% of Xarel.lo macerated on the skins for two weeks.

Both the Pagès Content blanc and orange come from the same plots of vineyards each year, though percentages vary. Both wines are always based on Macabeu, Xarel.lo and Montònec (Parellada); these are the majority of the vineyards at La Salada. 2021 was a drought year, so more Macabeu and Montòneg were used than Xarel.lo in this bottling—the former are planted on more fertile soils and have better yields in water-strained years. In general, the Pagès Content wines are meant to honor the Catalan farming families of the past who worked the land as a vocation with enthusiasm and love. They’re the inspiration for these easygoing wines, based on whichever fruit the year grants. Unfined, unfiltered, zero SO2 added.
