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.

 

Vinification:

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.
