Details

Produced by Can Sumoi, the new project of Pepe Raventós -also the owner of the Raventós i Blanc,- Can Sumoi Xarel·lo is made from grapes grown in the highest area of the DO Penedès.

A single varietal Xarel·lo, the vineyards of this organic Spanish white wine are located at an altitude of 650 metres above sea level. All of the farming and winemaking processes, both at the vineyards and in the cellar, follow strict organic and biodynamic procedures and are guided by a minimal intervention approach.

Following the lunar calendar, the grapes were harvested in September 2018. Once in the cellar, they were destemmed and gently crushed, after which the must fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks.

After 19 days, this white wine from Penedès spontaneously began malolactic fermentation. Finally, Can Sumoi Xarel·lo 2018 was aged on lees for 3 months with 2 weekly stirrings.

Additional Information

Appearance

Clean and brigh, this organic white wine has a bright straw yellow colour. Can Sumoi Xarel·lo also shows some nice golden tinges.

Nose

Nuanced and subtle, this Xarel·lo white wine smells of Mediterranean herbs, apples and pears, also suggesting some creamy remembrances and hints of white flowers.

Palate

Fresh and savoury, it is dry, linear and crafted with precision. Subtle mineral notes enhance the fruit and the herbal remembrances. This Xarel·lo from Can Sumoi is light-bodied, with a crisp acidity and a long, extremely fresh finish with an aftertaste of white fruit.

Our personal opinion

This natural white wine is extremely enjoyable. Refreshingly light, Can Sumoi Xarel·lo 2018 feels very pure.
