The name Sumoll is from the local slang term ‘sumollar’, which means maturing or withering, from the Latin verb ‘submolliare’. Its production is low so in order to make quality wines, you need a quality Gloria! 

This orange wine is made not just with Sumoll, but also with the rare variety Montanega. It's not a common grape, even in its native Penedes, largely due to its low yield, and so it has lost out to more productive varieties like Parellada. However, we think it's the making of this cuvée! The small berries produce good sugar levels and its thick skins are ideal for making orange wine. Montanega also has good acidity so the wines are fresh and will age very well. These two grape varieties combine to make an elegant bottle, with floral notes, baked white fruit, clove and honey. It's texture is delicate but the wine is still young so it will benefit from ageing over the next few years.

Age of the vines: 100 years old

Vinification: Direct press // Two days skin maceration // Aged in amphora lined with beeswax // Bottled unfined, unfiltered & no sulphur added.
