Details

Poduced by the Albet i Noya winery, Albet i Noya Lignum is an organic Spanish white wine made from vineyards located in Costers de l'Ordal, an area in high Penedès.

The blend features Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc coming from old vines, complemented by a little amount of young Xarel.lo.

Vinification of the three varieties was carried out separately.

The Xarel·lo was fermented in stainless steel tanks. The Sauvignon Blanc was also fermented in tanks, and then aged on its lees for 4 weeks.

As for the Chardonnay, it was fermented and then aged for 2 months in oak barrels.

Finally, this organic white wine was blended and gently filtered before its bottling. Quite conveniently, Albet i Noya Lignum Blanc 2017 comes with a screwcap.

    Albet blanco is my kind of white wine. I like whites with a good nose, a good structure and, above all, freshness. Like this one.
