Characteristics of Turó de les Abelles

Turo de les Abelles is a red wine from the Penedès, prepared by Finca Viladellops.

The winery is located in the region of Garraf, in the small rural town of Viladellops, in the municipality of Olèrdola (Alt Penedès). Vines have been cultivated in this area for many years.

Turo de les Abelles is a blend of Grenache (50%) and Syrah (50%). The Grenache grapes come from a plot called the Turo de les abelles (Mount of bees) with stony and calcareous soils,the Syrah grapes come from a vineyard with many marine fossils in the soils.

The vineyards are situated at 250m above sea level and ecological cultivation methods are employed, certified by the Catalan Council of Ecological Agricultural Production. The 2011 harvest of Turo de les Abelles was marked by a very well distributed rainfall throughout the year, which favoured a correct vegetative development of the vine. The climate humidity gave the skin and pulp an early and excellent maturation.

The development of Turo de les Abelles begins with a manual harvest in boxes of 15kg. The grapes undergo a pre-fermentation and maceration in open barrels at a temperature of 10-12 ° C. Then the juice ferments in barrels at a temperature of 23-25 ​​° C.

Finally, the wine is aged for 24 months in French oak barrels.

Taste Very tasty and fruity with fine and silky notes. Very good acidity and ripe tannins. Notes of black fruit with mineral notes. Long and pleasant finish. Round and structured.
Sight Intense ruby red colour, medium-rob, with a maroon rim. Nose Closed at first, but once it starts to open out a clean, defined and delicate nose emerges. Fresh black fruit (blackberries and blueberries) emerges to begin with, gradually giving way to more ripe fruit like plums and figs with strong aromas of blueberry jam. Fine toasted notes, spices (clove in particular) and mineral touches appear. Taste Elegant attack. Silky and tasty filling the palate with fruity sensations. Ripe, polished, perfectly-integrated tannins. Magnificent, defined and deep acidity which encourages another sip. Long and persistent finish leaving roasted and liquorice traces.

Sight An intense ruby red colour, medium robe with a maroon rim. Nose This wine seems closed at first, but once it starts to open up it exudes a clean, defined and delicate nose with deep aromas of fresh black fruit, strawberries, blackberries and blackcurrents, evolving into riper notes of plums and figs, strongly expressing appetising aromas that remind us of blueberry jam. Fine toasted notes, spices (clove in particular) and mineral touches appear.  Taste This wine shows elegant attack and is silky and tasty on the palate, inundating the mouth with fruity sensations. Ripe, polished, perfectly integrated tannins and a deep, defined, magnificant acidity that encourages another sip. Long and persistent finish, leaving nuances of roasted notes and liquorice. A structured, round, very well made red wine. Absolutely recommendable.

Reviews

D.O. Penedès

Winery Finca Viladellops

Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, as well as those that demostrate instrisic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used!  But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from the Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, there is one common denominator of the wines from Penedès, and that’s balance and quality.
