About: Toni and Anna Carbo are making wonderful wines in the most natural way possible. You may recognise Toni from his collaboration with Ramón Jané as Mas Candi. Since 2012 the couple have been creating their own wine under the label La Salada using the vines of Toni's family, who previously sold the fruit to Cava houses. The vines are up to 80 years old and have never been treated by chemicals in any way.
The Xarel-lo grapes spend 7 months on skins in stainless steel tanks, and only the free run juice is bottled. After this, it is blended with younger vine xarel-lo, parellada and (for the 2020 vintage) some chardonnay. This is then aged in steel for 6 months. A lovely but also funky macerated white, for those who enjoy the more natural style of wines.
