The Story

The best wines are obtained by listening to nature. This is the reason for which more than twenty years ago we chose the privileged environment of Fransola, historic estate located in one of the highest areas of the Penedès, to plant one of our most renowned vineyards. Its cold nights and mild days provide an excellent climate for growing vines, giving away the best sauvignon blanc grapes with which we make this elegant and balanced wine.

Appellation: DO Penedès
Grape variety:  Sauvignon Blanc

Soil: Deep clay-calcareous soils, reddish in color, with moderate drainage and high water retention capacity, that allow the development of the maximum aromatic expression of white wines and especially of sauvignon blanc. Formed from Eocene (Tertiary) clays.

Rainfall: Annual average (historical): 536 mm
Temperature: Annual average (historical): 13.4ºC

Winemaking:  To enhance the qualities of this wine, carried out an "assembly", fermenting 50% in vats of stainless steel and the rest fermenting and aging in barrels for 6 months / Fermentation time: 2 weeks / Fermentation temperature: In stainless steel at 14ºC, in
barrels at 16ºC
Aging: For 6 months in barrels (50% new oak, mix of American oak and French oak)

Service suggestion: Ideal to accompany crustaceans and shellfish, it pairs very well with grilled and oily fish, also with poultry and green herbs. Will serve 8-10 ° C.

Winemaker's notes: Intense, complex aroma of exotic fruit (passion fruit and green fig), delicately ennobled by fine notes of toast and vanilla (from the ageing in new French oak). Good balance in the mouth thanks to the wine's acidity, with floral notes that pleasantly linger mid-palate.
