Penedès Wine

 

Penedès is considered the most important wine region in Catalunyia (Catalonia), and is located near Barcelona. The area is known for producing sparkling Cava, which began production in the 1870’s, and is produced in styles ranging from value driven sparklers to vintage releases made in the Methode Champenoise. While these wines get most of the spotlight, the area also produces significant still whites and reds. 
 
It is divided into three regions: 
 
*Baix (Bajo) Penedes, the warmest region, with production of red wines made from Garnacha, Monastrell and Cariñena. 
*Medio Penedes, which has the highest amount of production for being the main source of the Cava grapes Macabeo, Paralleda and Xarell-lo as well as reds made from Ull de Liebre (Tempranillo), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  
*Alt Penedes has the highest elevation and grows Paralleda for Cava, as well as excellent whites made from Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewürztraminer Read more »

  • Jaume Serra Chardonnay Penedès 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Grabbed this one on a whim... seemed about right for the 30 degree heat; the pale straw colour is accented by good mousse (5 minutes plus and counting) with apple and pear on the nose. Entry is full of smooth, quite balanced grapefruit citrus - a refreshing draft for the price. Superb value. 87 points Read More

  • Torres Viña Esmeralda 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is about 5 euros in Spain - an unbelievable bargain by North American standards. The nose is full of wild rose and other sweet garden flowers filled in by apricot and peach. The entry is quite smooth and luscious with more soft fruit such as peach and maybe a bit of lychee nut. Would pair nicely with seafood - especially cuttlefish ... Read More

  • Segura Viudas Brut NV

    Snoothrank:

    Dry / Crispy by Freixenet in Spain very clean refreshing,--as one who searches high and low for inexpensive, good tasting Bruts I enjoy this one regularly. Buying a few bottles a week won't break the bank, and I enjoy Brut champagnes as a less filling, lighter alternative to beer, as well as a less-regretful morning after effect to red wine. Read More
