Product Description

Produced by Cavas Llopart, the new vintage of Llopart Clos dels Fòssils is made exclusively from Xarel·lo grapes.

The main feature of this Spanish white wine from Penedès is a mineral and saline quality derived from the area in which the vines are planted. The soil has a limestone stratum of marine origin with an abundance of marine fossils.

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 2021 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.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The white wine Llopart Clos del Fòssils is medium straw 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 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 2022 is an excellent varietal Xarel·lo.

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