Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Albet i Noya Curiós Xarel·lo, a single varietal, organic Xarel.lo from Penedès.

Made from from 30-year-old Xarel·lo grapevines, after a manual harvest the grapes were cold-soaked and gently pressed.

After that, the "free-run" juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 16ºC for 19 days.

Finally, Albet i Noya Curiós Xarel·lo 2018 was cold-stabilized for 5 days, and then gently clarified and filtered before its bottling.

Drink this young white wine from Penedès by the Albet i Noya winery within the next 18 months.

Nose

Showing a nice varietal character, this organic Xarel·lo from Penedès smells of white and yellow fruit, nuanced by touches of tropical fruit and citrus, over a distinctive background of woody herbs.

Palate

Clean and straightforward, this organic white wine by the Albet i Noya winery carries some well-defined notes of white fruit, dry fruit and aromatic herbs. Lively acidity, smooth texture and medium finish.
