Cati Ribot 'Escursac' 2020Regular price $50.00 Save $-50.00
Cati is an anomaly in the world of natural wine. Not only is she one of two female winemakers on the island of Mallorca, she is also just one of three natural winemakers in a place where winemaking is difficult. While many use the international varieties like Cabernet and Syrah to make their wines noticed by the world, Cati made a firm decision to use indignenous varieties that are lighter in style, reflecting the terroir of Mallorca. It shows just how focused Cati is as she not only is a single mother with a winery to run, additionally she flew back and forth from Barcelona to Mallorca daily while training as a somm. Her work ethic is unparalleled.
The Escursac grape variety was only just revived in 2006 in Mallorca after years and years of having been wiped out by phylloxera. The fruit is a combination of both estate and purchased fruit. The wines ages between steel, amphora, and used French oak barrels.
