Blanc de Blancs D.O Penedès

A combination of freshness and youth

Tradition, modernized since the beginning of Sumarroca. A traditional blend of Penedès constantly updated over the last 25 years in Sumarroca, with a small part of small grain Muscat, always harvested from our own vineyards.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINEYARD

The wine comes from two of our estates. On one hand, the Sumarroca estate in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, located in the northernmost part of the denomination of origin. In this case the land is poor and contains limestone and loose stones. The influence of the sea is reduced by the effect of the mountain ranges of Garraf, which dries the sea breeze, and the pre-coastal range, which reduces excess dry wind from the interior. The rest of the procedure is done from the Sabartés estate, located south of the denomination and clearly influenced by the sea, with a mild climate and Mediterranean wines.

HARVEST

The 2016 vintage has the main characteristic and determining fact of being the driest in history with 55% less rainfall than usual. This factor, along with the slightly accumulated drought of the previous year caused the grapevines to react intelligently and naturally adapt to expectations. Thus deciding not to grow the seeds of the grapes to ensure that they ripen impeccably. As for the temperatures, autumn and winter were extremely warm with an average temperature of two degrees higher than normal. The rest of the year, temperatures were slightly above average around 1 ° C and without radically elevated records. In August, the minimum temperatures dropped and helped correct the maturation of the small seeds.

The last rain before the harvest was in mid-June. Temperatures were back to normal in August, which improved the quality of the ripening of the grapes, and some rain in late August ensured the grapes matured optimally.
