Rajat Parr Phelan Farm Misturado de Cambria 2021
is a Galician-style coferment of Mencía and Trousseau. The Mencía and Trousseau are from the Phoenix vineyard at Phelan Farm, where in 2019 Raj Parr grafted own-rooted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines planted in 2007 to many cool climate varieties, including Mencía from Envínate’s Camiño Novo vineyard in Ribeira Sacra. The climate here is cold and marginal: grapes struggle to ripen, and harvest ends in the last week of October. Soils are felsite and pink quartz. The Trousseau and Mencía were harvested by hand and cofermented whole cluster for 14 days in neutral oak barrels, then raised in the same vessels. Bottled by gravity, unfined, unfiltered, and with no added sulfur.
