Praise

(*** Michelin stars)

The vineyards producing this wine are grown at 500 metres above sea level and offer unique characteristics. The wine’s descriptors are based on lightness and levity, with crisp acidity and vibrant aromas: apple, pear, green lemon and lime tree. The birth of a great wine.

89 points

Still a baby, the 2014 Nou de +500 is an unoaked white from Parellada grapes grown at over 500 meters altitude, hence the name of the wine. The grapes are sourced from old vines grown within the limits of Penedès but their wines do not carry the appellation of origin.

In el Pla de Manlleu, the vineyards grow free of the summer heat at over 500m above sea level. The vineyards, with barely any intervention, tell the story of the countryside. The wines are light and vibrant, with a playful acidity sometimes reminiscent of cava.
