D.O. Pla del Bages (Catalonia)
Petit Bernat Blanc is a white wine from the D.O. Pla del Bages, produced by the winery Oller del Mas in the municipality of Manresa (Barcelona).
Oller del Mas is a winery located in a restored medieval castle from the 10th century. The Margenat family is the heir and curator of the history of the Oller family.
The farm of Oller del Mas has 600 hectares, 60 of which are certified as organic vineyard, cultivated without any chemical synthesis products and using organic fertilisers. It is also the first winery in Catalonia and the third in the world to have the lowest carbon emissions (0.7 grams per litre).
The soils that we find at Oller del Mas are quite diverse. However, the loamy-clayey soils and the calcareous ones stand out. The climate in this area is strictly Mediterranean-continental, characterised by scarce rainfall and a strong variation in temperatures.
Petit Bernat Blanc is a wine made from Maccabeu and Malvasía Manresana from different farms in property: la Quintana Vella, Aiguamoll and Masia. These farms are over 30 years old, located at 290 metres of altitude on clay loam soils.
Once the grapes are harvested and once they arrive at the winery, the grapes are pressed, settled and fermented in stainless steel deposits for 21 days, with a controlled temperature of 16ºC.
Petit Bernat Blanc is an aromatic, fresh and light wine. The aromas of ripe white and tropical fruit stand out. In the mouth, it is easy to drink, soft and pleasant.
