ADVENT XAREL·LO

D.O. Penedés

 

Xarel·lo

 

9 months

 

A selective harvest is done of the best clusters of the old­vine Xarel.lo planted in 1974 in L’Avellà. The bunches are then transported to an ancient hay­barn, where they are hung to dry for more than 4 months in the breeze until the desired level of sugar concentration is reached. After vinification the wine ages in 300l new French oak barrels for 9 months.

This deliciously complex dessert wine has a powerful bouquet of white flowers such as Spanish jasmine, apricot, quince preserves or membrillo, and marcona almonds. The mouthfeel is exceptionally rich while remaining elegant and finessed with a full spectrum of flavors ranging from dried stone fruits to fresh tropical papaya and guava accented by soft cream tinged with vanilla. The finish lingers on the palate with a persistence that is never cloying.
