Region: Penedès, Spain
Vineyard and Viticulture:
Grapes are selected from two sites situated in the Alt Penedès region. Vineyards are planted at 400 to 500 metres above sea level on a mixture of clay, sand and calcareous rock soils. The average age of vines is 20 years, planted at a density of 2500 vines/ha with yields of around 60hl/ha. The grapes are harvested by hand during the third week of August.
The grapes are sorted manually in the vineyard then de-stemmed, gently crushed and pressed using a pneumatic press. Primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and lasts for 15-20 days at 15-16°C. The secondary fermentation occurs in bottle following the traditional method. The wine is matured on its lees for 9 months with riddling by machine before disgorgement.
Pale cherry red with fine bubbles. Inviting nose with aromas of red fruits. This wine has complex ripe red cherry and strawberry fruits flavours, good balance in the mouth and a luscious, long finish.
Great on its own or with variety of tapas dishes.
