What are sulfites?

Sulfites are the salts that wine contains as a result of having added sulfur. Sulfur has been used since the time of the Roman Empire as a preservative and stabilizer for wine. This element has antioxidant, antiseptic and antimicrobial properties that preserve the original characteristics and aromas of the wine over time and protect it from deterioration.

Sulfites are naturally produced during alcoholic fermentation, but it is a minimal quantity, normally less than 10mg/l.
In this case, the stabilizing action is carried out by natural factors, such as acidity, which are intrinsic characteristics of the grape itself when it is grown under certain conditions and when its state of health is optimal. Additionally, it requires the most meticulous and careful preparation so that it is protected at all times, does not have contact with oxygen and its properties are not altered by external factors, thus preserving its essence to the maximum.
When a wine has a minimum amount of sulphites, it expresses itself in a very particular way. Its aromas are more intense, since they are not inhibited by sulfites, so the aromatic complexity is greater. The texture in the mouth is also more voluminous. In short, the wine shows us its most authentic essence and at its maximum potential, without filters and without complexes. This allows us to produce Cavas with a very interesting and very personal character.
