Almiral de la Font

Our grapes are well known in this part of the world for good reason. We have teamed up with Alberto Marti, the general manager of the vineyards surrounding Almiral.

The Marti family, represented today by Alberto and his father, have been applying their knowledge of Spanish winemaking to the climate and soil of Catalonia for generations. This has contributed to the production of our cava and white wine made in the best Penedès tradition.

We now have for sale our Reserva Cava 2008 and our 2010 and 2011 white wine . There are limited stocks of our very well received 2009 white wine which achieved an average rating of 89 from Cellartracker  – (for more details – see http://www.cellartracker.com).

Local expertise from 18th century traditions

Each year, only 20% of the best grapes are used in Almiral de la Font wine and cava.

The Almiral estate comprises over 340 acres of land situated in the Penedès wine growing area. With its mosaic of different soils (mostly of a calcareous type) and microclimate, Almiral produces a graceful and sensuous wine.

The origins of Almiral cava and wine go all the way back to the 18th century. Today, more than 35 acres of southern facing vineyards are dedicated to wine growing. The property has been associated with Cava production for several decades and still houses the original wine presses.

Careful grape selection

At Almiral, we have been cultivating our vineyards in an ecological way since 1890.

Only the best grapes are used and these are chosen before harvest from the best vineyards.

Manel Avino, owner of local winery producing Clos Lentiscus, adds his considerable experience to the choosing process – timing and choice of vineyards are central to the production process.

The process

Throughout August and September, we monitor the grapes and weather conditions to determine the optimum time for picking.

Picking is done by hand in September in the vineyards of the Penedès Appellation and transported in small boxes to Can Ramon winery to avoid damage.

The grapes are destemmed, crushed and transferred to large vats. The must is cleared by a settling process to remove solid parts such as grape skins and pips. The must is then transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel vats.

Grape variety

The grape variety grown from vines of between 25 and 45 years of age is principally Xarello.

Macabeo and Parellades grapes are also grown. No preservatives or herbicides are added – only the grapes from the estate are used.

Almiral de la Font Brut Nature is a boutique hand-crafted product with a very limited supply of no more than a 3-4000 bottles in any vintage.
