It had been sold out on the market for two years
A new vintage for one of Albet i Noya's most charismatic Classic Penedès wines. The Brut 21 Barrica is a white wine with red grapes made with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, where the Chardonnay base wine has been put through new Allier French oak casks, and then the wine has been through 40 months of aging.
It's a sparkling wine that the Sant Pau d’Ordal winery has been making since 1997, but which is only made in certain years. The last vintage of Brut 21 Barrica had been sold out for nearly two years, and this vintage had a limited production of 1100 bottles.
The Brut 21 Barrica is a Classic Penedès that is a markedly vintage wine, with notes that remind us of nuts, fine pastry, or very ripe fruit. Its taste is creamy and enveloping, with an integrated, elegant bubble.
