Equivalent Bottle Price £44.99

 

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 Catalan estate of Els Jelipins was born from the desire to create a vinicultural family project that would allow Glòria and her daughter Berta to live in the hills of Font Rubí, near Barcelona. An agronomical engineer by trade, Glòria found small plots of the nearly forgotten Sumoll variety out of sight, past the industrial vineyards that produce grapes for cava. She carefully works each vineyard separately thus adjusting to its individual needs, possibilities and potential. The first vintage came in 2003 and every year, she makes around 2000 bottles. Ask her about the name and she will likely tell you it is a word that describes a feeling, a magical and strong word. And the same could be said of her wines.
