Albert I Noya Xarel Lo Classic Penedes 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this wine are from the highlands of the region, the result of a selection of old Garnatxa, Carinyena and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, found in dry soils over 350m above sea level. This wine can be enjoyed straight away, although it will evolve favourably in the coming years if stored between 10° and 15° C. We recommend serving it at 17°C.

Of the 101 hectares of land they control, 76 are dedicated exclusively to the cultivation of vines. The vineyards cover the slopes of the inheritance of the west end of the range of Ordal, following the undulations of the terrain and having on terraces or on slopes facing the south side. Like all good soils vinifera, the Can Vendrell are poor in organic matter with variable contents of clay and sand on a bed of limestone, but a permeable soil with good moisture retention capacity. Leaving aside the suitability of these soils for vineyards, other factors contribute to define the specific implementation of different types of vines, such as orientation, sunshine, humidity and altitude terrain. To optimize the quality of 15 varieties grown at Can Vendrell, has well considered what were the best land for the proper maturation of each. Read less

Lemon grass nose, lots of acidity breaking into peaches and a little nutmeg on the finish.

Tasting Notes:

Dashes of spice and vanilla pod that mix nicely with the autumnal fruits.
