Description

Can Sumoi Garnatxa Sumoll 2022 is a blend of black Grenache or Garnacha (Garnatxa in Catalan) and Sumoll, a lesser-known Catalonian grape variety. It is an unoaked red wine that is elegant, fruity and, unusually for Grenache, relatively low in alcohol at 12.5%. Sumoll, also known as Sumoi, is mainly grown in Catalonia and it is seeing a revival, not least because of the efforts at Can Sumoi to promote the grape. The aim ultimately for this wine is to make it a Sumoll varietal, i.e. 100% Sumoll but for now it is a delicious blend with Grenache.

 

Can Sumoi Garnatxa Sumoll 2022 is fresh and fruity, tasting of red fruits like raspberries, redcurrants and red cherries with a hint of blood-orange and spices. The old vineyards from which this wine originates produce low yields of very intensely flavoured grapes. After careful handling and minimal intervention wine-making they produce complex wine full of amazing perfumes and concentrated flavours. The wine manages to contain its power and display finesse with a silky mouthfeel. You will find new flavours in this wine with each mouthful, it is so multi-layered and it has a lovely, juicy, long finish.

 

Can Sumoi is the organic project set up in 2017 by Pepe Raventós in Penedès with the aim of “recovering the vital heartbeat in an abandoned farm, preserving it through agriculture and giving expression to it by making wines with minimal intervention, capable of naturally conveying the territory where they are born.” Can Sumoi Garnatxa Sumoll is 100% organic from high altitude vineyards with poorly developed stony soils – this is a good thing as you can read in my blogpost on terroir. Minimal intervention is practised – native grape varieties, indigenous yeasts, gentle pressing, minimal sulphites and no other chemical intervention. Fermentation and ageing is in stainless steel to make sure the fruit characteristics of the grape are retained in the wine. The main problem when farming so naturally is the fauna – roe deer love the vine shoots and wild boar love the grapes to such an extent that 20-30% are lost to them. They obviously have good taste!

Producer's Notes

“The 2022 vintage was dry and brought us concentration and roundness to the wines… Our Garnatxa Sumoll is not only special because it has 50% sumoll, a great variety considered for decades as a minor variety, but it is also unique because it brings together joy and seriousness, freshness and depth.

 

It is an expressive and suggestive wine, ideal both for intimate moments and for family gatherings, both for pairings with cured cheeses and for barbecues in the garden. A wine, in short, optimal for making even the smallest moments great.”

How to Enjoy

Probably best enjoyed with food. It will go with most meats – chicken, turkey, red meats (grilled, roasted or barbecued), game etc – and vegetarian/ vegan cuisine but avoid serving it with very spicy foods as that could clash with its own spicy characteristics.

 

Serve at: 16 – 18°C

Awards

90 points – RobertParker.com – May 2024
“It’s primary, fruit-driven, aromatic, peachy, clean and expressive. The idea is to learn to make Sumoll and, in the long run, produce only Sumoll, not blend it with Garnacha. This has some dusty tannins and should stand up to food.”
