Characteristics of Nun Vinya dels Taus

Nun Vinya dels Taus is a wonderful white wine made by the Enric Soler winery in the small town of Torrelavit, in the Penedès wine region.

Enric Soler was chosen as Spain’s best sommelier in 1997. In 2004, he started his project, on a low budget, by recovering a small plot of old Xarel·lo vines and restoring the basement of a farmhouse turning it into a micro-winery. This is when he made his first wine: Nun Vinya dels Taus.

Nun Vinya dels Taus is a single-variety Xarel·lo wine that starts life in a small vineyard of no more than 0.89 hectares and aged around 70 years old. It is cultivated with great care in the Alt Penedès areas, in line with the principles of biodynamic agriculture.

It is called Taus in honor of the group of moles who live on the plot. The plot was replanted around 1940 (the vines that were there previously were uprooted during the Civil War to create a republican airfield). It is a unique vineyard with a great diversity of old clones. Enric Soler cares for this plot like it were a vineyard-garden.

The harvest is carried out manually. The grapes are destemmed and cold macerated for 10-12 hours in a carbonic atmosphere. After static racking, the barrels are filled by gravity. 50% of the barrels are new French oak and 50% are second-use. This is also where the must spontaneously ferments and ages for 9 months. This decadent and complex wine is made with great care but very little intervention.

Tasting notes Nun Vinya dels Taus

Sight

A pretty golden colour. 

Nose Very complex nose. Pear, honey, citrus, balsamic, licorice and mineral notes. Taste

The taste is very full and flavoursome. Balanced and fresh. Creamy.

Sight Attractive yellow colour with delicate golden reflections. Clean and bright wine with dense tears. Nose Very elegant, very fresh and seductive aromas with abundant notes of intense ripe white fruit, fresh citrus and aromatic flowers. All of these aromas are mixed with the creaminess provided by the oak. Taste Bulky and very unctuous wine with a very long, deep, intense and concentrated mid palate in which the notes felt in the nose become very balanced and very smooth. Excellent acidity which provides a great freshness to the wine. Elegant, very long and very persistent finish. One of the most elegant, serious and complete white wines from Penedès. A round wine.
Sight Intense and bright straw colour. Nose It is a wine with a floral nose and some hints of citrus. Powerful and intense aroma. Taste In the mouth, touches of wood and toast are added to the floral notes that emerge in the nose. Subtle citrus notes persist. Without any doubt, one of the most elegant wines of Penedès.

    13/07/20 Nun Vinya dels Taus 2018 An outstanding example of Xarello -- and one if the best white wines I know. It is very rich and has great complexity and depth, all in harmony and with a beautiful freshness. Nun Vinya dels Taus shows discrete notes of the ageing in wood. The 2018 vintage is very well integrated, with all aspects in perfect harmony. This will age well for a number of years.

    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.
