Els Jelipins Rose Vi de Taula Biodynamic Rose wine, Penedes, Sumoll and Garnacha, rare, unique, crystalline wine offering immense pleasure to the drinker, in Rose form, its has combined intensity and freshness and all the style and complexity of the red wines. Jelipins Rose is 100% Sumoll. The name Sumoll is related to the local slang term ‘sumollar’, which means maturing or withering, from the Latin verb ‘submolliare’. Young wine from Sumoll grape has a slight roughness that disappears with ageing. Its production is low and achieving quality wines requires high skills in wine production. A very rare wine, the Jelipins Rose for devotees of the wine is a really special treat, we manage to get hold of only small quantities and every bottle is a unique drinking experience. These delicate wines can be susceptible to some refermentation in bottle resulting in a subtle ‘frizzante’ style fizz like a Pet Nat. Far from being unpleasant, the lift and freshness imparted by the bubbles make the wine all the more enjoyable!

The Spanish estate of Els Jelipins was born from the desire to create a viticultural family project that would allow Glòria and her daughter Berta to live in the hills of Font Rubi near Barcelona, enjoying a life of moderation in which they could find personal enrichment in tandem with the forces of mother nature and appreciation of the simpler things in life.

In 2001, this former engineer looked for the best plots of vineyards around Font Rubi, with special characteristics of soil, vine and climate. She found them in Penedès Superior. Glòria selects the grapes from various hillside vineyards cultivated without a single chemical or any other aggressive activity that disrupt natures natural flow. She carefully works each vineyard separately, adjusting to its individual needs and potential. She's in favour of achieving a fruit that can mature naturally and healthily without becoming trapped by a particular dogma or strict regime. Since 2003, Glòria has been making this now Iconic wine with a production of barely 2,000 bottles. She mainly uses a very old indigenous red grape variety called Sumoll, which almost totally disappeared from Spain, but she also puts some Garnacha (equivalent to Grenache) in the wine. If you try to ask Glòria about the name Els Jelipins, she will tell you that it's a name without meaning but a name with feeling that is magical and strong.

    This wine is outstanding, it has depth, weight and complexity along with a strong energy and vitality. I bought a second bottle before we’d finished the first.
