Ca N?Estruc Xarel-lo 2016
An elegantly structured, unoaked, old bush vine Xarel-lo from the slopes of the 'holy' mountain of Montserrat
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 NOTE Aromas of citrus and baked apple are backed by flinty notes. Orchard and stone fruit characters meet fresh, crisp acidity. The wine is textural with approachable ripe fruit balanced by gentle fennel and herbaceous notes and saline minerality on the finish.
FOOD MATCH Delicious on its own, or serve with light summer dishes, or grilled fish and chicken.
