Production

This Xarel•lo is sourced from a single 2 ha vineyard. Vines are 30-40 years old, grown on poor clay and gravel soils, and have been retrained from traditional bush to trellising. The vineyard is called Vinya del Hort (which means 'vineyard at the vegetable garden' in Catalan). After hand harvesting individual parcels are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks of 25-200hl, at controlled temperature, for 12 days. The parcels are then blended prior to bottling.

Tasting notes

Aromas of citrus and baked apple are backed by flinty notes. Orchard and stone fruit characters meet fresh, crisp acidity. The wine is textural and broad, with nutty, savoury notes combining with ripe fruit, gentle fennel and herbaceous notes. The finish is complex with saline minerality.

Food match

Delicious on its own, or serve with light summer dishes, or grilled fish and chicken.
