Product Description
Details

Produced by Caves Llopart, the new vintage of Llopart Clos dels Fòssils has changed its composition. Now, this Spanish white wine is a single varietal Xarel·lo.

Produced by Caves Llopart, one of Penedès oldest wineries, the singularity of this organic white wine comes from the soil in which the vines grow. It has a limestone stratum of marine origin with an abundance of marine fossils which gives the wine a deep minerality and an interesting saline quality. 

Harvested at an optimal ripening state, the grapes were cold-soaked, gently crushed and put into stainless steel tanks, where they were fermented using only indigenous yeasts. Then Llopart Clos dels Fòssils 2018 was macerated on its lees, transferred into French oak barrels from Allier, and aged for 4 months.

Appearance

The white wine from Penedès Clos del Fòssils has a straw yellow colour with golden iridiscences and some grey tinges.

Nose

Delicate and complex, this varietal Xarel.lo conveys aromas of white fruit, honey and ripe pineapple along with notes of dry fruit, toast, nutmeg and some smokey hints. This Crianza white wine from Penedès continuously evolves in the glass.

Palate

The palate of this organic white wine is yummy and fresh. Ripe pears, honey and quince. Some refreshing citrus notes, some saline touches and delicate hints of smoke and toast. Quite precise, with a good balance between acidity and sweetness. This wine from Caves Llopart has a long mineral aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

An original organic white wine from Penedès, Llopart Clos dels Fòssils 2018 pairs beautifully with a well-laid cheese platter.

Successful blend of creamy, unctuous, sexy Chardonnay, with a touch of Xarello that gives thrust, acidity and bite to the wine. Highly recommended.
