After years of work focused on the vineyards, we are delighted to present the Mustillant white 2011 produced from organic grapes and which has obtained the CCPAE quality mark from the Consell Català de la Producció Agraria y Ecologicala (Catalan Council of Organic Agricultural Production).
The primary grape used in the production of this wine is the Parellada. This is the latest ripening grape of the Penedés native varieties. The grapes were picked in late September. It comes from the highest vineyards in the D.O. area: Pla de Manlleu, Pontons, Can Ferrer and Aigua Viva. Only free run juice, i.e. the must resulting from a gentle pressing, is used and fermented at low temperature. We use the same yeasts for the first and the second fermentation with the aim of achieving complete metabolism of the sugars and a delicate, well integrated sparkle.
Appearance: Straw yellow hue with a steely coloured rim.
On the nose: Showing a floral and fruity character: daisies, green apples, peaches, lime peel, against a backdrop of fresh grass.
On the palate: Fresh on entry, lovely and light on the palate. Very fine carbon dioxide, a slight tingle on the tongue, which combined with the sustained, lively acidity, really brings out the sensation of freshness inviting you to take another sip….
Ideal as an aperitif, it is at home with all types of food and is a perfect accompaniment to fresh salads, seafood and fish. We recommend serving this wine at 6 -8 ºC. Ideally it should be consumed within a year of bottling to preserve all the freshness and liveliness of its tiny bubbles in every glass.
