The 2014 Colet Tradicional Classic is a sparkling wine from D.O. Penedés D.O., produced by traditional method by Colet Vins in Pacs del Penedés, located 40 km from Barcelona.
It has been more than two centuries since the Colet family began farming its vineyards, located in the heart of Penedés. However, it was not until the beginning of the 1990s the Colet Vins label was born. Josep and Sergi Colet manage the family-run business, and maintain traditional viticulture and winemaking practices while utilizing the most modern approaches and techniques. .
Colet was one of the first wineries to abandon the D.O. Cava, and attain the D.O. Penedés status, currently Clàssic Penedès. More precisely, the sparkling wines are organically farmed and produced in the traditional method, left 15 months in the bottle, and the label indicates each bottle’s disgorgement date.
Colet Tradicional Classic sparkling wine is produced using Xarello, Macabeu and Parellada varieties from its estate vineyards.
The winemaking process for the base wines is performed in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Each variety undergoes this process separately. Once the coupage has been completed, the second fermentation begins, with a minimum ageing time of 24 months.
