Characteristics of Augustus Xarel·lo
Augustus Xaral·lelo 2011 is a white wine from Penedès produced by the Augustus Forum winery.
The vineyards of the winery are located in the Pla del Mar, 3km from the Mediterranean Sea, in the municipality of El Vendrell (Tarragona). The name of the winery comes from the remains in the vineyards of the Via Augusta, a great road to ancient Rome. In tribute to this, the winery has a clear Roman name.
Augustus Xaral·lo, as its name suggests, is a varietal Xarel.lo. The grapes come from old vines over 50 years old.
Wine is made directly from the flower must. Once the juice is extracted, one part of it is fermented in barrels and the other in steel tanks at a low temperature.
Once the blend is made, the wine is aged in tanks and on its lees for 3 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.
