The Suriol family has been making wine in the Penedes region, about an hour east of Barcelona, since the 1600s. In the 1990s they were early adopters of organic farming and they are well-known for their sparkling wines and Cava. However, their ‘Cal Ron’ is something entirely different. 100% Garnatxa Blanca grown on calcareous loam, it is fermented on its skins for five days. Then it’s aged in a mix of chestnut, concrete, and amphora made by a local artisan from clay on their estate. Zero sulfur added.

This wine smells exactly like gingersnap cookies, in a really nice way. Round and ripe, it’s got pleasant spice and some apple cider notes, finishing with some briny complexity and  a little dusting of tannin. Mostly soft, easy-going, and refreshing, this one may get a little mousey but it was nothing off-putting. I polished this off with a nice roast chicken and some carrots. Definitely great for root vegetables and salty snacks, but should also work well with tapas and any Mediterranean fare. [Jonathan Kemp March, 2022]
