Product Description

This is the new vintage of Albet i Noya Curiós Xarel·lo, a varietal, organic Spanish white wine 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 2020 was cold-stabilized for 5 days, and then gently clarified and filtered before its bottling.

Pair this young organic white wine from Penedès of the Albet i Noya winery with Japanese food and Peruvian ceviche.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The white wine Albet i Noya Curiós Xarel·lo has a bright, clean yellow colour with some steely tinges.


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


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

Our personal opinion

A fresh, cheerful wine, Albet i Noya Xarel·lo Curiós 2020 pairs well with tapas, appetizers, light dishes and Japanese food.
