The Mediterranean landscape in conjunction with the winds from the Pyrenees Mountains helps to produce fresh and lively cavas in the D.O. Alella, each one different from another as a result of diverse soils and microclimates
Alella, which takes its name from a small town in the Maresme region about half an hour up the coast from Barcelona, is a tiny yet important sub-region in the Catalan landscape. The vineyards are located along the coastline but also run into the foothills of the Sierra de Parpes range. The best terroir is to be found in the higher altitude sites on the Parpes slopes, which enjoy a more continental climate sheltered from the sea breezes. Wines of real concentration, balance and structure are increasingly being produced from these superior sites. Conversely, the oldest vineyards that run along the coast tend to producer softer, less structured wines with a lower acidity. The coastal vineyards are planted to dark soils, whereas the higher altitude areas, known as Valles, contain more limestone in the soil structure. The distinctive quality of the Alella terroir is the all important topsoil, known as Saulo in Catalan. This sandy, granite based soil retains heat and ensures that full ripeness is rarely a problem for Alella's wines!
The most important white grape varieties in Alella are undoubtedly Xarel.lo (known as Pansa Blanc in Alella) and Chardonnay, whilst the reds are predominately blends of Merlot, Garnacha, and Tempranillo, known locally as Ull de Llebre. Small amounts of Macabeo, Malvasia, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir are also found across the region. A real and incredible value highlight from Alella is the classic white blends and more modern varietal wines.
