Abadia de Poblet Blanco is a white wine from D.O. Conca de Barberà, produced by the winery Abadia de Poblet in Monasterio de Poblet, Tarragona.

 

Abadia de Poblet is the only winery of Catalonia located within a historical monument. It gathers the winemaking tradition of the monks of the Cistercian Order, from Burgundy, and the knowledge of Conca de Barberà, a unique area that has managed to maintain the cultivation of indigenous varieties.

The philosophy of the new monastery wines, which recover local varieties (mainly Trepat, Garrut and Grenache) is that they transmit the characteristics of the grapes that they use to make the wine and the terroir in which they have been cultivated. This is achieved by working non-invasively and recovering winemaking techniques from the monks of the Cistercian Order.

 

Abadia de Poblet Blanco is a wine made from Maccabeu and Parellada , from old vineyards, located at 550 to 700 metres facing south, south-west, on soils that are poor in organic matter.

The grapes are harvested manually and placed in 16-kg boxes, with selection in the vineyard. Once they arrive at the winery, they are pressed, and the must goes through a static settling process. Then, it is transferred to a cement tank where it is left to ferment at a controlled temperature of approximately 16ºC. Once the fermentation is finished, it is transferred separating the gross lees. Ageing takes place for 1 year in cement deposits. During the first two months, the wine goes through a weekly batonnage, and after this, through static ageing right until the end.

The Bodega Abadía de Poblet Monastery was born from the desire to recover the tradition of wine in his monastery, an ancient tradition, characteristic of the Cistercian Order, which started in Burgundy and linked with a single variety of grapes: Pinot Noir, a delicate and difficult variety, giving soft and elegant wines, unique in its finesse and away, for their style, from any other known red wine.
As with many other Catalonian wine regions, the DO. Conca de Barberà is developing its own territorial identity that over the years has been redefining the personality of the wines and the region, with the help of the red Trepat grape variety. The Trepat grape can be used to produce good sparkling rosés, rosés with character, fresh red wines, as well as elegant blanc de noirs. In just a few years the region and this grape variety have shown their potential, their versatility, and the possibility of carrying out R&D (Research and Development) with them. There are still few wineries who produce single variety wines using this grape, but most importantly, all of them have become aware of the obligation to enhance the uniqueness that defines the territory and the new style of wine to be imposed in the twenty-first century.
