Review

Made from strains planted in 1990 on slate soils, a rarity in the Penedès, where the soils are mostly limestone.

Ratpenat (bat, in Catalan) was born from the commitment between the Credo winery and the Granollers Museum of Natural Sciences for the defense of the environment and the living beings that inhabit it.

During the elaboration of Ratpenat, they perform a maceration work with the skins and the rapa for a few hours. The fermentation takes place in old oak barrels and, subsequently, remains in the same barrel for approximately two months. This wine may have totally natural sediments as a result of minimal intervention.
