Salty & Herbal

Andres Carull family has been making wine in Alicante for decades. At a very young age, he already knew what he was going to dedicate himself to. However, a visit to Bordeaux in 2008 made him discover natural wine; turning his winemaking towards this ‘old-but-new’ path. The seed planted in Bordeaux in 2008 has now blossomed into a personal project dedicated to producing stripped-back, honest wines that truthfully express his countryside, heritage and people. Vibrant wines from living vines.

Salicornio is a bushy plant that grows in salty, brackish waters. It reflects the saline characteristics of the Moscatel grapes that grow in La Mata Natural Park, barely 50 metres from the shore. While this wine ages in concrete tanks, a film covers the surface of the wine similar to Sherry. It is called veil flor. It transforms and enriches the wine, making it smell and taste more salty, and with hints of dried fruits.

Salicornio is fresh, salty and vibrant on the palate. On the nose it has floral aromas with some herbaceous hints, very well integrated. This is the perfect wine to pair with salty aperitifs such anchovies and fish-based dishes.

Andres Carull's family has been making wine in Alicante for decades. At a very young age, Andres already knew what he was going to dedicate himself too. However, a visit to Bordeaux in 2008 introduced him to natural wine; turning his winemaking passion towards this ‘old-but-new’ path.

Vibrant wines from living vines. Andres works exclusively with local grape varieties such as Montastrell, Garnacha, Garnacha peluda,
Rojal, Tortosina, Moscatel and Malvasía using nothing but fermented grape juice.
He farms the 20 hectares organically and biodynamically. Half of vineyards surround the town of Villena at over 600 meters above sea level and the other half are located in La Mata Natural Park right on the Mediterranean coast. Unfiltered, unfined, no sulphur added.
