The production of Mas Candí Quatre Xarel·los has an interesting, almost sentimental history behind it.
Specifically, the vineyards are La Pura, in the village of Les Gunyoles, Mas Rossell in Font-Rubí, L’Angeleta in Pla del Penedés and Cal Martí in Subirats. The four towns are located in the highest area of DO Penedès. All four are around 60 years old.
Traditionally vinified, Mas Candí Quatre Xarel·los 2022 was aged for 8 months in stainless steel tanks, clay amphorae and chestnut, acacia, French and American oak barrels.
Such combination gives this Penedès white wine a particularly complex character.
The wine Mas Candí Quatre Xarel·los is medium yellow with some golden tinges.
Fresh, intense notes of aniseed, white flowers, citrus and vegetables, typical of a varietal Xarel·lo, combined with some toasted and spicy nuances, define the nose of this Crianza white wine.
Well-balanced and smooth-textured, this wine from 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.
