Product Description
Details

Produced by Caves Llopart, the new vintage of Llopart Clos dels Fòssils is, like the previous one, a varietal Xarel·lo.

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 2020 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.

Appearance

The white wine Clos del Fòssils is medium straw 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.

Palate

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.

Our personal opinion

Crisp and mineral, Llopart Clos dels Fòssils 2020 is an excellent varietal Xarel·lo.

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