Product Description

The terroir-driven white wine Xarel·lo Finca Viladellops is produced from a blend of 70% Xarel·lo and 30% Xarel·lo Vermell, a pink-skinned mutation of the former with a refined aromatic profile.

The grapes are sourced from 3 organically grown parcels planted with 20 to over 50-year-old vines. They vineyards are located in the Garraf mountain range, a region at a 20-minute driving distance from Barcelona.

A subzone of DO Penedès, the soils of the Garraf mountain range have an abundance of lime nodules and marine fossils. These elements impart a nicely mineral, truly distinctive character to this Spanish white wine

Harvested by hand and meticulously selected, the grapes were cold-soaked and vinified with the stems. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out in oak barrels, and then this white wine from Penedès was aged on lees for 8 months with periodic stirrings.

After that, Finca Viladellops Xarel·lo 2022 was blended and aged for a further months on lees in stainless steel tanks before being bottled.

Pair this white wine aged on lees from bodega Finca Viladellops with white meat recipes and fish dishes.

Aerate some time before drinking.

Additional Information

The white wine Finca Viladellops Xarel·lo is medium yellow with some steely tinges and a golden hue at the rim.


The Finca Viladellops Xarel·lo XXX wine is complex and highly characteristic, this varietal Xarel·lo begins suggesting notes of pastry and white flowers intertwined with some mineral and undergrowth remembrances. As the wine breathes, it becomes more expressive, evoking dry fruit, marzipan, Mediterranean garrigue, white fruit and touches of anise and fennel.

Palate The first sensation is like breathing the marine breeze, with salty and iodized notes along with hints of flowers, pastry and white fruit. Smooth and extremely delicate, this white wine from Finca Viladellops has an exceptional acidity and a long, saline, flowery finish.

Our personal opinion

This is very good. Dry and focused, with a limestone minerality and a nice texture. It will grow in the bottle.
