Funambul Brut Nature 2017 - Entre Vinyes - Penedes, Spain 75cl
BOTTLE SIZE: 75CL
THE WINEMAKER: ENTRE VINYES
Made by Maria & Pep, a couple who started from scratch in 2012 after taking over some old vineyards, and have slowly built this project into the successful and experimental winery it is today
Funambul is a gorgeous, zippy and fresh dry Cava made from old vineyards in the protected park of Foix, Penedes. The wine spends over two years on its yeasts in the bottle, but this is very much a fruit-led sparkling wine. There are some notes of yeastiness as expected from this traditional style but this is as unmanipulated as cava gets. Super pure, and an absolute pleasure to drink.
The grapes come primarily from a old vineyard called ‘La Baixada de les Bruixes’ (forest parcel, meaning ‘The Witch’s Path’) in the heart of the Baix Penedés region where the soils are generally very poor, leading to low yields but a great concentration in the grapes. These old bush vines are surrounded by a rich biodiversity, encouraging a natural balance in the vineyard that finds its way into the wines. Part of the parcel is also in the ‘Foex’ natural park.
