Turó d’en Mota
The 2009 vintage offers a genuine connection with the landscape and soil of the Penedès region, with very healthy fruit of extraordinary and persistent acidity.
The vintage was shaped by a rainy autumn and a summer season with a markedly Mediterranean character – climatic conditions that were ideal for obtaining grapes of great liveliness and expressiveness.
Delicate and sublime, Turó d’en Mota 2009 embodies the character of a genuine and valuable natural environment and stands as an ambassador of a patient passion of 13 years of ageing in our caves.

"It is a true masterpiece of long ageing. The aromatic profile is built on delicate traces of leaves, balsamic (laurel), undergrowth and a very fine pastry. Great acidity and a sensation of freshness. Mediterranean profile for its expression".

- Grounds of limestone texture (balance of sand, slime and clay) and very calcareous nature. They are treated with deep and well-drained soils, with moderate water storage capacity.
- Very evolved soils due to the presence of a calcium horizon with important accumulations of carbonates in the form of nodules, that is, stones formed from concentrations of lime. They have an active limestone of 14%, which makes them extremely calcareous soils.
