Product Description
Details

The production of QX Quatre Xarel·los has an interesting, almost sentimental history behind it.

It is made by Mas Candí, a winery composed by four young winemakers, each of whom inherited a vineyard from their grandfathers.

A single varietal Xarel·lo, this Spanish red wine is made from vines around 60 years of aged located in four towns scattered over High Penedès. All of the plants are over 50 years of age.

Traditionally vinified, QX Quatre Xarel·los 2017 was aged for 8 months in 4 different types of barrels.

Namely, this white wine from Penedès was aged in chestnut, acacia, French and American oak barrels, each of which brings an interesting nuance to the resulting wine.

Appearance

The wine QX Quatre Xarel·los has a pale, clean, bright yellow colour with some golden tinges.

Nose

Fresh, intense notes of aniseed, white flowers, citrus and vegetables, typical of a Xarel·lo from Penedès, combined with some toasted and spicy nuances, define the nose of this Crianza white wine.

Palate

Well-balanced and smooth-textured, this wine by the Mas Candí winery is reminiscent of lime and dry fruit, with a dim layer of spices, pastry and aromatic herbs. Crisp acidity and long, creamy finish with some delicately bitter remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Well-crafted and characteristic, QX Quatre Xarel·los 2017 is an expressive, sophisticated Xarel.lo.
