NÚRIA CLAVEROL, the origins
The philosophy and idea of Núria Claverol was born in 2004. Sons of Núria and Carles Sumarroca decided to pay tribute to their mother. For this reason, they commissioned a unique and special design, inspired by ancient Greek amphorae. The winning design was obtained from the Sumarroca award in the 2004 ADI-FAD edition.
It sought to offer an elaborate, unique and genuine through an old vineyard of Xarel·lo.
Núria Claverol Homenatge is the only one of the four Núries that is signed by the three sons – Carles, Albert and Jordi – and expresses its gratitude to its mother by naming the highest-end cellars of Bodegues Sumarroca.
A particular vineyard
The Núria Claverol Homenatge is made in a place very influenced by the Bosc de l’Àliga and its ravine, which creates a stream of air refreshed by the forest. It is a vineyard facing east, which, along with the forest effect, causes the afternoon sun to go out earlier and not overheat the vineyard. The terrain is calcareous, with a high percentage of gravel and fossils in depth that give a great personality to the wines.
Intense and unique aroma, with mineral and toasty notes that give uniqueness to the whole. In the mouth it is extremely tasty, with a fine and perfectly integrated bubble that enriches the lively and fruity taste of the first notes, and the mineral, fresh taste of the latter.
