Bodegas Pinord is a family business which was founded 150 years ago. Since then, generation after generation, year after year, the wines produced by the family have been growing in prestige, the indigenous varieties have improved markedly, and the family name has become inseparably linked to the Penedés area where they are based.The Penedés district is situated between Barcelona and Tarragona, with the mountains of Montserrat marking the border in the north and the Mediterranean in the South. The soil is varied, contrasting from chalky clay to sandstone with distinct differences in depth so that the vines may take root. The mild Mediterranean climate is ideal for growing vines, indeed there is evidence that the Romans planted vineyards here. The slightly wetter weather in the valleys means that there is no need for irrigation.
AppearanceBrilliant appearance. Gives off a large amount of small and medium-sized bubbles. The presence of carbon dioxide ensures that a persistent head is formed in the glass. Pale straw yellow in colour.
AromaFairly intense. Tertiary aromas from the second fermentation mingle with the aromas from the first fermentation to give it a character of its own.
TasteFrank on the palate with flavours developed in the bottle. Sufficient body. Smooth and silky, the carbon dioxide keeps it fresh and lively so the taste remains in the mouth for a long time.
