Front and back

Review:

The Turó de les Abelles (the hill of the bees) wine is the most prized and sought-after wine from the Finca Viladellops winery. Its limited production (only around 2,000 bottles) and extraordinary expressivity make this wine an essential example of the possibilities present-day Penedés wines offer us.

Each bottle of Turó de les Abelles captures the essence and flavours accumulated over many years in the Finca Viladellops estate, thanks to its environment and, in particular, its Grenache vines. These vines grow in the plot of land from which the wine takes its name, a plot of stony and chalky soil which gives the agreeable Grenache its intense mineral character. The blend also includes Syrah grapes from a vineyard rich in marine fossils. The grapes are collected in crates of 15 kilos and the must then undergoes a cold maceration with grape skins before fermenting in open French oak barrels with wild yeasts. Finally the wine is then stood to age for 24 months in the same kind of oak barrels.

This is an intense yet delicate wine, without over-extraction but with a lush nose. Its most notable aromas are of ripe wild fruits and spices such as cloves and vanilla, embellished with the fine minerality so typical of the Finca Viladellops wines. Both wide and long on the palate, the Turó de les Abelles is flavoursome and spicy with seductive hints of toast, liquorice, peat, and Mediterranean forests. Acidity and volume come together in perfection to create a wine balanced from start to finish, whose final sweet touch leaves you with a wonderful memory of this drink.

It is recommended to decant the wine half an hour before serving.

Penedès, Spain

Located at an altitude of 200-250 metres above sea level, in the rugged terrain of the Garraf Massif, Finca Viladellops produces wines with a discernible character of the terroir. The soils, which are poor, determine the lack of vigour in the plants, the low yields and small berries, and provide...
