2103 – WHITE WINE CHARDONNAY CASK of the D.O. PENEDÈS
Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay.
Vinification: The grapes arrive at the winery in perfect health and optimum maturity. They are introduced in a pneumatic press, where a soft and moderate pressing is performed. Once the solid waste has been removed from the must, by static sludge at 8 ºC, the clean must undergoes alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in new French oak barrels. The wine stays in contact with their mothers in the same barrels for seven months, with fortnightly batonings. Finally, the wine is clarified with bentonite and stabilized at -5 ºC to remove excess potassium bitartrate.
Bottling: May 2020
Complex and exuberant aroma that blends the varietal character (hazelnut, toast) with notes of tropical fruit (pineapple and grapefruit) and the smoky touches provided by aging in barrels.
Its mouth is dense and creamy, with wide development and fresh acidity that evolves towards an extraordinarily long and balanced finish in which toasted nuances reappear.
