Product Description
Details

A single varietal Xarel·lo from Penedès, Albet i Noya El Fanio is produced by Albet i Noya, a winery that pioneered the introduction of organic farming in Catalonia more than 30 years ago.

Produced from a single, 2-hectare estate planted in 1948, the harvest was carried out manually. Once in the cellar, this Spanish white wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 18 days at a controlled temperature.

After that, this organic white wine was aged for 8 months, 80% in egg-shaped concrete vats, which allow for natural micro-oxygenation and recirculation, and the rest in acacia barrels.

Finally, both wine musts were blended, and Albet i Noya El Fanio 2018 was gently filtered and bottled.

This white wine from Penedès has a limited production.

Additional Information
Appearance

The white wine Albet i Noya El Fanio has a pale yellow colour with dim golden tinges.

Nose

Characteristic and well defined, this organic Xarel·lo from Penedès smells of apples, peaches and pears. There are dim suggestions of citrus, and some mineral and earthy notes, underpinned by remembrances of aromatic herbs, flowers and fennel.

Palate

Fresh, unmasked and suggestive, this El Fanio from Albet i Noya has a substantial body, balanced by a first-rate acidity which provides a solid backbone. Spices, dim bitter notes, remembrances of flowers, bone fruit and white fruit and some mineral undertones. Long finish.

Our personal opinion

Crafted following organic procedures, Albet i Noya El Fanio 2018 from Penedès is a remarkable Xarel·lo.
