Espenyalluchs is a white wine made by Enric Soler in the Penedès wine region. It is a single variety Xarel·lo from the Espenyalluchs vineyard, which lies on a gentle slope at about 390 metres above sea level.
Their bush vines are planted closely together and young, although they came from old vines aged over 70 years old that are used to make the prestigious Nun Vinya dels Taus wine.
After the manual harvest, the grapes are quickly taken to the winery and are lightly pressed without destemming. The must is then placed in 300-litre, fourth- and fifth-use French oak barrels, and spontaneous fermentation begins with the yeasts from the grape skin and the winery, under controlled temperatures.
Using the same barrels, the wine ages for 8-9 months, depending on the vintage, in contact with its fine lees without being racked or undergoing forced clarification or stabilisation processes.
All the estate’s vines are Xarel·lo with the exception of a small plot of Malvasía de Sitges, and they are all cultivated according to biodynamic principles. Enric Soler is a world-renowned micro-winery located in Torrelavit, in Penedés. In the winery he works meticulously, with care and precision, stopping the grapes from coming into contact with oxygen and using gravity for most of the work.
