Characteristics of Augustus Chardonnay

Augustus Chardonnay is a white wine from the appellation of origin (D.O) Penedès produced by the winery Augustus Forum.

This cellar is found in Vendrell (Tarragona), 3km from the Mediterranean Sea. The vines are planted on the Pla del Mar, a location where there are remnants of the Via Augusta, a road that used to lead directly to Rome. In homage to the history of the location and a strong demand for tradition, the cellar chose the name Augustus Forum.

As its name suggests Augustus Chardonnay is a monovarietal wine from Chardonnay. The vineyards enjoy a microclimate special to the appellation of origin (D.O) Penèdes because of its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea. The Mediterranean breezes contribute to the good health of the grape and to some extent aiding the grapes to ripen.

For the production of Augustus Chardonnay, the must is fermented in French oak barrels from Nevers at a controlled temperature. In the same barrels the malolactic fermentation is later performed and an ageing process of 4 and a half months.

Tasting notes Augustus Chardonnay

Sight Pale yellow and golden highlights. Nose Medium-high aromatic intensity. Aromas of citric and white fruit with herbal touches. Mineral notes and a creamy finish. Taste On the palate, it is strong and fresh with toasted and citric sensations. A round finish.
Sight Bright straw yellow with light golden reflections. Glyceric. Nose Strongly varietal wine, with notes of very ripe tropical fruit along with hints of citrus on a creamy background with lactic nuances. Taste A round, very pure and expressive Chardonnay wine. It has a wide and bulky attack and a silky, dry and fruity mid palate with marked notes of cream. It is a greedy wine, with a great structure and a refreshing acidity. Very persistent wine.
Sight Straw yellow. Nose Aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, papaya and banana and citrus, toast and dairy products. Taste Nice creaminess and mouthfeel. Wine very greedy.

Designation of Origin D.O. Penedès

Winery Augustus Forum

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, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic 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 Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
