Product Description
Details

A very interesting wine, Pardas Rupestris is produced by Celler Pardas, a trailblazer winery from Penedès.

This Spanish white wine is made from a totally indigenous blend of Xarel·lo, Xarel·lo Vermell and Malvasia de Sitges, three indigenous Catalan varieties which make for a rather special 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. This is were the name Rupestris comes from.

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 2020 must was drawn off, and fermented for 20 days at a controlled temperature.

Finally, this organic white wine was aged on lees for a month and a half, after which it spent a further three months in concrete diposits before being bottled.

Nose

Fresh and expressive, this blend of Xarel·lo, Xarel·lo Vermell and Malvasia insinuates aromas of white flowers, citrus and aniseed, with orange blossom, aromatic hebs and mineral notes in the background.

Palate

Fresh and dry, wine from Celler Pardas has a pleasantly straightforward, no-nonsense quality and a very good acidity. Citrus, freshly-cut grass, jasmine and sour apples, with a medium long finish.

Perfect with pasta and rice dishes. White, but not ethereal.

Dry, fresh, with a note of berries and a sweet eco at the end. Uncommon and nice.
