The grapes are sourced from low-yielding, over 60-year-old Picapoll vines scattered over several plots.
Harvested by hand at dusk, once in the cellar the grapes of this Spanish white wine were meticulously selected, gently pressed and cold-soaked for a period of 24 hours.
Then they were fermented and macerated in stainless steel tanks, after which this white wine from Pla de Bages was aged on lees in French oak barrels for a period of 10 months.
Finally, Abadal Nuat 2018 was bottled and aged for some months before its commercial release.
Ambitious but not pretentious, we suggest that you decant this white wine aged on lees for 30 minutes before you drink it.
The white wine Abadal Nuat is medium yellow some golden and steely tinges.
Complex, delicate notes of pomelo, pineapple, mango, passion fruit and lychee. After a while, this Picapoll slowly evolves into aromas of orange blossom, jasmine, almond flower and fennel, with notes of yeasts, pastry and toast over a mineral background.
Bold and palate-coating, this wine is also suprisingly fresh. Juicy notes of ripe white fruit and white flowers, punctuated by notes of citrus, flowers, honey and royal jelly. This white wine of Bodegas Abadal has a very long, creamy finish with some bitter undertones.
