D.O. Penedès (Catalonia)
HMR White is a white wine made by the Heretat Mont Rubí winery, located in the town of Font-Rubí in the north of the D.O. Penedés.
The winery and the vineyard are situated between 520 and 700 metres above sea level. The vineyards merge with deep Mediterranean pine forests, growing alongside a wild environment with aromatic undergrowth. They make wines with native and mainly single varieties.
The philosophy of the winery is to support traditional, sustainable viticulture, which is respectful of the environment, seeking balance between its grape strains and the environment, and at the same time incorporate new technology. In the winery, all of the production processes are designed and controlled to avoid intervention as much as possible, using minimal quantities of sulphites and using their own antioxidant lees.
HMR White is a wine made with the Xarel.lo variety, planted on rather unproductive soils. After a maceration of the skins, it ferments at a low temperature to preserve the aromas as much as possible, and undergoes a brief ageing on its lees.
