Ex Ex Collection

You are here

Every year, the oenologists of Perelada produce small quantities of a large variety of wines, aiming to study the influence of factors such as the maturity of the grapes at the time of harvesting, the soil type, irrigation, sun exposure... A special experimental vineyard plot and microvinification cellar are used for this experimentation. The very best of these wines become part of the Ex Ex collection. Exceptional Experiences which are very limited edition.

Ex Ex 12

Perelada Ex.Ex. 12 is a blend of seven grape varieties from the 2013 harvest and four types of terrain very differentiated by structure (clays, sands with gravels, ferruginous slate and blue slate). It is a wine whose final blend comes from the four Finca wines currently owned by the Perelada winery (Finca Malaveïna, Finca Espolla, Finca La Garriga and Finca Garbet). Ex Ex 12 Concept: The blending of seven varieties in the same wine resulting in a lot of complexity. The coupage of four "terroirs" of Finca, clearly differentiated in their edaphological and climatic structure, resulting in a "Finca de Fincas" wine. The coupage of the four Finca wines (Finca Malaveina, Finca Espolla, Finca La Garriga and Finca Garbet), once the time in aging in barrels of each of the wines separately. Later, the proportion of the final coupage of the Finca wines has been proportional to the vineyard area that goes to each Finca wine: 49% Finca Malaveina, 24% Finca Espolla, 16% Finca La Garriga and 11% Finca Garbet) , resulting in two coupons in the same wine.

Ex Ex 11

Perelada is constantly researching and experimenting, and in the eleventh edition of its Ex Ex collection of experimental wines, it has succeeded in one of its biggest challenges. For this edition, the central theme has been to revive the traditional winemaking of our ancestors and create a natural wine in which four experiences come together: White and red varieties. Ex Ex 11 has been made from four varietals: two white and two red. All have been vinified in the same vat. Native Empordà varieties. This original blend also brings together the four indigenous grape varieties of the Empordà D.O.: the Samsó and Garnatxa Tinta reds and the Macabeu and Garnatxa Blanca whites. Old vines. All the grapes are sourced from the Finca La Garriga vineyard, home to Perelada’s oldest vines. The Garnatxa Tinta and Samsó grapes come from vineyards planted in 1976, while the Garnatxa Blanca vines date from 1970 and the Macabeu, from 1964. Natural wine. For the first time ever, Perelada is releasing a natural wine without sulphites, vinified with indigenous yeasts and produced without the addition of any oenological products and without clarification or filtration.

Designation of origin: Empordà
Varietals: Samsó (35%), Garnacha Negra (33%), Garnacha Blanca (16%), Macabeu (16%).
Ageing: 13 months in 300 litre French Allier oak barrels already used for one vintage. Bottled on November 7th, 2014.
Tasting note: The wine is remarkable for its medium-deep ruby red hue. Its aromas are predominantly wild berry and fresh fruit along with subtle overtones derived from its ageing. This is an elegant wine, fresh, well balanced and full of personality.
