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