Albet I Noya Petit Albet White 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Petit Albet is produced from Chardonnay and Xarel-lo grapes grown organically in three vineyards within the Albet I Noya Can Vendrell estate in Costers de l’Ordal. The vineyards have a southwest exposure and are rich in calcareous, clayey soils with very low levels of organic materials. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks at fifteen degrees Celsius for twenty-one days. In keeping with natural organic techniques no clarifying agents are used in the production process. The wine is cold stabilized and goes through two light filtrations prior to bottling.

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.
