La Salada is husband and wife team Toni and Anna Carbo who make exceptional natural wines in Penedes from vineyards passed down by Toni's grandfather. Most of the vines are over 80 years old and have never been treated with chemicals. This is carried through to the winery where there are no additions whatsoever and all wines are bottled without fining or filtration.
This is the still version of Roig Boig made from a blend of 10 native Catalan varieties, both red and white. Delicate and sweet fruited with ripe strawberry and redcurrant aromas with some yeasty notes for ageing 4 months on the lees. The perfect Summer red chilled down a little before serving.
