White Wine Augustus Chardonnay 2020
Availability: In stock
A varietal Chardonnay, Augustus Chardonnay is a high-quality Spanish white wine produced from vines located in the heart of Penedès, close to the Mediterranean Sea. Besides benefiting from an exceptionally bening climate, the sea breeze gives a distinctively saline nuance to the fruit.
Crafted by the Avgvstvs Forum winery, the grapes were harvested all along 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 2020 was aged for 4 months in the barrels.
Prior to bottling, this organic white wine was delicately filtered.
This varietal Chardonnay from Penedès is subtly mineral and rather special.
The wine Augustus Chardonnay is medium yellow with some golden tinges.
Intense and sophisticated, this Chardonnay suggests aromas of passion fruit, candied lemon rind and dry fruit, with some mineral undertones, dim toasted nuances, and hints of pastry and sweet spices.
Palate-coating and creamy, this wine from 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.
