The grapes for the 2017 Principia Mathematica were harvested earlier than ever, but the wine shows good freshness and a varietal nose with character and very integrated oak.This was bottled with very little sulfur and is clean and expressive. It has a soft and tender palate, with integrated acidity (there is less acidity than in 2016). In 2017, it went 100% through malolactic, which has resulted in a slightly creamier and rounder palate that is polished, with a tasty, almost salty finish.

Cataluña, or Catalonia, is a vibrant and diverse wine region in northeastern Spain, renowned for its wide range of wine styles and microclimates. This region encompasses several Denominaciones de Origen (DOs), including the famous DO Penedès, known for its innovative white and red wines, and DO Priorat, highly acclaimed for its powerful and intense red wines. Catalonia is also the heartland of Cava, the Spanish sparkling wine, primarily produced in the Penedès area.

Catalonia's geography is varied, featuring coastal areas, extensive valleys, and rugged mountains, which contribute to the distinct terroirs found within its boundaries. The Mediterranean climate generally offers warm, dry summers and mild winters, ideal for viticulture, with variations in temperature and rainfall influenced by altitude and proximity to the sea.

The region produces a multitude of wine varieties, with an emphasis on both indigenous and international grape types. Traditional red varieties include Garnacha (Grenache) and Cariñena (Carignan), particularly prominent in Priorat and Montsant, where old vines contribute depth and complexity to the wines. For whites, varieties such as Xarel-lo, Macabeo, and Parellada are prominent, especially in the production of Cava.

Catalonia's wine production is characterized by a blend of tradition and innovation, with many producers experimenting with new techniques and sustainable practices while respecting their heritage. This dynamic approach, combined with the rich cultural history of the region, makes Catalonian wines truly unique and highly sought after in the global wine market.

Penedes is a wine region located in Catalonia, Spain. It is known for producing some of the finest sparkling wines in the world, particularly Cava. The region has a long history of winemaking, dating back to the Roman era.

The style of production in Penedes is heavily influenced by the climate and geography of the region. The area is characterized by a Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and mild winters. The soil is predominantly limestone, which is ideal for growing grapes.

The wines produced in Penedes are typically made from a blend of local grape varieties, including Macabeo, Parellada, and Xarel-lo. These grapes are used to make both still and sparkling wines, with Cava being the most famous.

Cava is made using the traditional method, which involves a secondary fermentation in the bottle. This process gives the wine its characteristic bubbles and complex flavors. The wine is aged for a minimum of nine months, but some producers age their Cavas for much longer, resulting in a more complex and nuanced wine.

In addition to Cava, Penedes also produces a range of still wines, including white, red, and rosé. The white wines are typically made from the local grape varieties, while the red wines are made from international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Overall, Penedes is a region that is steeped in history and tradition. Its wines are known for their quality and complexity, and the region is a must-visit destination for any wine lover.
