Product Description

This is the new vintage of Cantallops Xarel·lo d'AT Roca, produced by Agustí Torelló Sibill & Agustí Torelló Roca, the father-son team at the helm of the AT Roca family winery.

This confidential Spanish white wine is produced from a single, 0.98-hectare Xarel·lo vineyard planted in 1955 in the Costers de l'Ordal area, at 320 metres of altitude, in DO Penedès.

After the harvest, the grapes were fermented with indigenous yeasts. Then a 70% of this white wine from Penedès was aged on its lees in 500-litre French oak barrels, and the rest was aged in egg-shaped concrete vats. Both were aged for 8 months.

Finally, Cantallops Xarel·lo d'AT Roca 2022 was bottled unfiltered and aged for a further months before its release.

We suggest that you aerate this organic white wine some time before you drink it.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The white wine Cantallops Xarel·lo d'AT Roca is pale yellow with some golden tinges.


First thing we notice in this organic Xarel.lo is a deep smokey and mineral background, nuanced by aromas of pears and apples and a touch of aniseed. Rich and intrincate, this "Vi de Coster" also suggests some remembrances of bitter herbs, pastry and and fine lees.


This wine from bodega AT Roca is layered, precise and very fresh. Citrusy acidity, with delicate notes of honey and butter, remembrances of fennel and a touch of bitter herbs and spices. Long, mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

Elegant and impeccably crafted, Cantallops Xarel·lo d'AT Roca 2022 pairs excellently with rice recipes, seafood, and Asian food.

Fresh, but not bone-dry. Quite mineral, the palate is complex and rich. Will improve for 3 or 4 years.

Big fan of Xarel lo here. I like the fact that this Roca Xarello is dry, crisp and mineral, but not coarse. I enjoyed very much the polished palate and the long finish,
