Details

Sicus Cru Mari Xarel-lo Method Tradicional 2009 biodynamic wine, Cava area of Spain, cool, complex, crystalline, taught and delicious Champagne alternative. This is a fantastically elegant sparkling wine made from Xarel-Lo and fermented in Amphorae and aged for a long time on the lees in bottle. The 2009 vintage is superb, complex and taught with lightly toasted aromas of biscuit and brioche. The palate is quite rich but has stunning freshness. Cava can reach the heights of stunning Champagne method sparkling wine and Sicus is doing that and more.

Sicus is located in Bonastre, in Tarragona and led by a remarkably single-minded young wine craftsman called Eduard Pie Palomar. His vineyards is all about indigenous varieties, organically grown and exclusively amphorae fermented in vessels of local clay, some of which are actually buried in the vineyards. Only 6 km from the coast, the Mediterranean influence has a huge impact on the style of the wines. The terroir is shallow clay with little organic matter and no fertilisers which restricts yields further and yields fruit with immense concentration. The favours are alive and vivid, the wines are truly beguiling. Sicus is the ultimate expression of the surrounding landscape, the salinity of the sea, minerality of the soil and the fruits and flowers of the forest. The wines are sublimely elegant, cool, soft and pure. The signature variety of the region the Sumoll finds a truly wonderful expression in this place and is one of our red wine finds of the year. Eduard himself, well he is a wild man I am told, dedicated to quality, originality and with a touch of the reckless in what he does, the wines are super cool.
