Details

The Avgvstvs Forvm winery recently launched the Microvinificacions series.

This is a collection of wines with very limited productions aiming to express the perfect integration of a specific grape variety to a specific place.

This Spanish white wine is a single varietal Xarel.lo coming from over 50-year-old vineyards located less than 2 kilometres far from the Mediterranean Sea. 

After the harvest, 60% of the grapes were fermented in 600-litre French oak barrels, and the rest in stainless steel tanks.

Then both wines were aged on its lees for 2 months.

Finally, the wine was blended and Augustus Microvinificacions Xarel·lo 2013 was aged for a minimum of 30 months in the bottle.

Drink this wine from Penedès until 2020.

Production of only 3,230 bottles.

Decant 30 minutes before drinking.

 

 

 

 

Additional Information

Appearance

Very bright, this Crianza white wine has a pale yellow colour with intense golden glints.

 

Nose

Ripe white fruit, combined with notes of flowers, dry fruit, honey and aromatic herbs over a delicately spicy background.

 

Palate

Yummy and fresh, with a silky body and a very good, crisp acidity. Nuances of vanilla, honey, citrus and dry fruit, combined with notes of garrigue and balsam. Long, complex finish.

 

Our personal opinion

Augustus Microvinificacions Xarel·lo 2013 is a substantial Xarel.lo that pairs splendidly with creamy chesses and oily fish recipes.
