· Tasting notes ·
  • Straw-yellow colour, clean and bright.
  • Intense and complex aromas that combine the freshness of apples and pears with hints of citrus like orange peel and more subtle ones of exotic fruits. It is also characterised for some mineral touches that confers the wine personality.
  • Good acidity on the palate that gives it the desired freshness. It is smooth and balanced, with a pleasant aftertaste that invites one to continue enjoying it.
Elaboration

Monovarietal wine made of Xarel·lo, an excellent ambassador of the character of the Penedès. The vineyards are located between the central and northern part of the wine-growing region, specifically in the Foix river basin.

The grapes are destemmed and cooled below 8oC and once the must has been separated, it is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 17oC to preserve the varietal aromas. During the following weeks, bâtonnage is carried out to give more complexity to the wine. This wine seeks a balance between freshness and a certain volume on the palate.

This wine is a good companion for fish, seafood and combines well with spicy recipes such as those of Asian or Mexican cuisine.
