Albet I Noya Xarello Penedès 2008
In September, a manual harvest was carried out. Alcoholic fermentation took place over 7 days in stainless steel tanks at 28°C. Maceration followed for approximately 14 days with daily pump-overs. Using American oak barrels of 2nd and 3rd use, the wine aged for 11 months. Full malolactic fermentation occurred. Prior to bottling, the wine was filtered and then cellared an additional 4 months.
The wine was stabilised for five months over the winter and then transferred to oak barrels for a year until it acquired the desired complexity. Given the characteristics of this wine, and its ageing in French and American oak, it will improve in the coming years developing new nuances, finesse and aromatic potential. Best after decanting.
