Product Description
Details

A company focused on the production of terroir-oriented wines, Mas Candí is one of the most interesting wineries currently operating within the DO Penedès.

A single varietal Xarel·lo, Desig is made from vines planted in 1961, grown following biodynamic principles.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

After that, this Spanish white wine was aged for 7 months on its lees with periodic stirrings.

To preserve the deep mineral character of this white wine from Penedès, the wine not aged in oak or any kind of wood.

Moreover, Desig 2019 was not filtered or clarified before its bottling. Thus, it may contain some natural sediment.

Additional Information
Appearance

The white wine Desig has a pale yellow colour with some steely tinges.

Nose

Complex and expressive, this Xarel.lo from Penedès suggests aromas of fennel, pear, pineapple and apple, alongside notes typical of ageing on lees,such as yeasts, as well as remembrances of withered vegetables, aniseed, flowers and mineral.

Palate

Fresh and delicately unctuous, this young white wine is quite mineral, with good white fruit, some vegetal hints and understated notes of citrus and flowers. This wine by Mas Candí has a vibrant acidity and a long, slightly salty finish.

Our personal opinion

The excellent Desig 2019 is a perfect match to fish, shrimp, pasta, pizza and Oriental food.
