The wines of Laureano Serres are the epitome of of natural wines. He owns a small (4 ha.) property in Tarragona under the label Mendall. Benoît Vallée, the owner of a small wine shop in Barcelona that promotes traditional and natural French and Spanish wines, recently wrote, “[Serres’] white wines are for me a concentration of Spain. In 2002, he forgot to put sulfite in one of his tanks. First, he was able to see for himself that it’s possible to make wine without sulfites; second, he realized that he preferred his wine like that. And since that year, he decided courageously to make wine without sulfite even if he possesses really limited means of wine making.”
A blend of 60 % Cariñena, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Garnacha. The Cariñena vines are 69 years old, while the Cabernet and Merlot average around 10 years old. Like all of his wines, there are no added sulfites and the grapes are grown organically with only the addition of copper sulfate when necessary.
