Crafted by the Avgvstvs Forum winery, the grapes were harvested during the second half of August. The wine was produced using only the "free-run" juice coming from the first, gentlest pressing of the grapes.
Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations took place inside 300-litre French oak barrels.
Finally, Augustus Chardonnay 2018 was aged for 4 months in the barrels.
Prior to its bottling, this white wine from Penedès was delicately filtered.
24,852 bottles produced.
The wine Augustus Chardonnay has a clean, pale yellow colour with some golden tinges.
Intense and rather sophisticated, this Chardonnay from Penedès smells of tropical fruit, citrus and dry fruit, with dim toasted nuances and some hints of pastry, butter and sweet spices.
Palate-coating and creamy, this wine by Celler Augustus Forum has a substantial, delicious body, defined by notes of pineapple compote, smoke, white flowers, almonds, English custard and citrus. Excellent acidity and long, fresh finish.
|Our personal opinion||

Mild and smooth, with a much appreciated crispness which downplays the usual Chardonnay tropicalism. Rather interesting, with great drinkability.
A high-end Chardonnay from Penedès. This wine will not disappoint you if you like California Chardonnays, because it has all of their qualities, and a freshness very much of its own. Organic, finely crafted, I think this is a very good wine at a reasonable price.
