About The Producer
Castell d’Age is the creation of three generations of women in the Junyent family, located in the Beguda Baixa, in the heart of the Alt Penedés region. It all started with Aurèlia Figuera and then was transformed by Anne Marie Comtesse in the late 1980s with the production of Cava. Anne Marie is a pioneer in introducing organic farming in the region. With the addition of her daughter Olivia Junyent to the business, they are now certified organic and biodynamic agriculture, a method that respects the relationship between humans and earth.
Terroir & Vineyard Practices:
The Bodega is certified organic and biodynamic at the strictest levels, using little to no added sulfites in their wines. This comes from some of the Bodegas oldest Sauvignon Blanc vines and Xarl-lo vines grown in Can Pere Valls on clay-limestone and licorella soils. The label showcases Aurèlia Figuera and represents all of the different aspects of biodynamic agriculture that come together to create the wine: the people, terroir, environment, climate, soil, etc.
A unique white wine made from Sauvignon Blanc and Xarl-lo that is a refreshing alternative. It has a straw yellow color. The nose is full of stone fruit (white peach) and tropical fruit (pineapple) aromas. On the palate, it's fresh and silky. Totally enjoyable.
The grapes are harvested by hand at the beginning of September. It undergoes spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeast at controlled temperatures.
