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.

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.
This small winery is located in El Vendrell. In 1982, the owners of this winery bought a farm of about ten acres of vineyard at the very foot of the Via Augusta, called Les Deveses. In Cellers Puig & Roca have also leased another ten acres of vineyards, planted from their original stocks.
