The goal with Gotes, (which means "droplets" in Catalan) is freshness. Organically farmed grapes are picked and fermented to show the minerality of the site and the fresher fruit profile of the wine. Thus, the wine has good natural acidity, which makes it ideal for hearty foods and cellaring.

Production: 1,000 cases
