Product Description

A very interesting wine, Pardas Rupestris is produced by the intellectually curious, always self-challenging Celler Pardas winery.

This Spanish white wine is made from an interesting blend of Xarel·lo, Xarel·lo Vermell, Malvasía de Sitges and Macabeo, four indigenous Catalan varieties which make for a rather unique wine.

Since the vineyards are planted in shallow calcareous soils, the roots are in direct contact with the bedrock, a fact that imparts a distinctive minerality to the fruit.

Harvested by hand and carefully selected, the grapes were destemmed and gently crushed prior to fermentation. Then they were macerated for 3 to 4 days, after which Pardas Rupestris 2017 must was drawn off, fermented and aged on its lees for 4 months with periodic stirrings.

A faithful expression of traditional Penedés, this organic white wine should be drunk over the next 2-3 years.


Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Pardas Rupestris has a clean, bright, pale yellow colour with some steely tinges.



Fresh and expressive, Rupestris by Celler Pardas smells of white flowers, citrus and aniseed. On the background, a perfume of orange blossom, aromatic herbs and deep mineral undertones.


Fresh and dry, this young white wine from Penedès has a straightforward, no-nonsense quality and a very good acidity. Citrus, freshly-cut grass, jasmine and sour apples. This wine by Celler Pardas has a crisp, medium long finish.

Perfect with pasta and rice dishes. White, but not ethereal. Review by Lucy (Posted on 07/02/2019)
Dry, fresh, with a note of berries and a sweet eco at the end. Uncommon and nice. Review by The Pro (Posted on 14/06/2018)
