Characteristics of Improvisació

Improvisació is a white wine from the Penedés wine region made by Enric Soler, a winery in Sabanell (Font-Rubí), Barcelona.

Improvisació is made entirely with Xarel·lo variety grapes taken from three plots of old vines in Alt Penedès.

The vines are cultivated according to the principles of biodynamic agriculture, with special emphasis on monitoring the state of the vine and the grape and only intervening when necessary. To make the Improvisació wine, the grapes are gently pressed without being destemmed, and 80% of the resulting must is placed in an Austrian oak foudre and the remaining 20% in cement eggs. Following spontaneous fermentation of the must at a controlled temperature, the aging process begins in the same containers and 20 days before bottling, the wine is racked without being subjected to forced stabilisation or clarification processes.

Enric Soler is a world-renowned micro-winery and a known for the ability to showcase the different expressions of the Xarel·lo variety in complex and reflective wines.

Tasting notes Improvisació

Sight Pale golden yellow with steely hues. Bright, clean and fine glyceric tear. Nose Very intense, aromatic and fragrant. Notes of ripe white fruit with herbal and mineral notes. Floral and toasted flavours. Taste Light and pleasant entrance. Very good acidity, smooth and balanced. Long and inviting finish.
Nose A fantastic explosion of intense and seductive aromas. First, we are amazed by herbal nuances, slightly spicy touches and emerging white fruit. After swirling the glass, the ripe white fruit gains in intensity and tropical fruit appears, with toasted, creamy (slightly buttery) nuances and a floral touch. Light mineral background.
Sight Nice pale golden yellow with steely edges. Bright and clean wine with thin dense tears. Nose A large explosion of intense and seductive aromas. First, it surprises us with its herbal nuances, the light spicy touches and an increasing scent of white fruit. When swirling the glass, the notes of ripe white fruit gain in intensity and get mixed with some hints of tropical fruit and good creamy toasted aromas (with a light hint of butter) and a floral touch. Light mineral background. Taste Very nice, seductive and elegant wine. A mature wine, with very well balanced fruit and wood and a good acidity. Very aromatic wine with a creamy texture. Its long finish leaves the mouth full of smoky sensations.

    13/07/20 Improvisació 2018 Improvisació is the "entry-level" Xarello varietal from Enric Soler (if this is new to you, be warned -- it will make you go for his other wines as well!). It is lively and shows the complexity and potential of this grape, with all aspects beautifully integrated. This is a wine of outstanding quality, for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended!

    Designation of Origin D.O. Penedès

    Winery Enric Soler - Cal Raspallet Viticultors

    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.

    Imágenes y situación D.O. Penedès

    Cal Raspallet Catalan farmhouse is a typical late nineteenth century that maintains the same structure. The vineyard of the Taus is a piece of 0.89 hectares of vineyard located in the Alt Penedès, in the end of Torrelavit. Taus is called, in honor of moles community residents in the plot. The vineyard was planted by the year 1940 (and was previously vineyard but was torn during the Civil War to form part of an airfield Republican). It is a single vineyard and single variety with a great diversity of clones. The fact of working a small plot of vineyards allows a very direct and specific impact at a time to act.
