The singularity of this Spanish white wine from Penedès 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 2019 was macerated on its lees, transferred into French oak barrels from Allier, and aged for 6 months.
Pair this organic white wine with creamy cheese, shrimp and rice dishes.
The white wine 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 organic white wine from Penedès continuously evolves in the glass.
This wine from Caves Llopart is yummy and fresh, with some saline and citrusy notes, underscored by some smokey and toasted hints. Good balance between acidity and sweetness, and long finish with a gently mineral aftertaste.
