Avinyó Petillant Rosé

Avinyó Petillant Rosé

Avinyó Petillant Rosé is a vi d’agulla, the Catalan term for a prickly wine bottled with a little natural effervescence retained from the winemaking process. This vibrant and refreshing wine is the traditional summertime quaffer of the Penedès region of Catalonia, and it’s perfect for drinking out of a porrón or out of a can at a picnic, concert, or backyard hangout. 

Vinification – After a nighttime harvest, whole clusters are crushed, followed by a short skin maceration. The alcoholic fermentation occurs with indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks between 14°C and 16°C. The wine is then cold-stabilized before the beginning of secondary fermentation in stainless steel tanks with the addition of yeast and cane sugar.
