White wine from Penedès. Old-vines Xarel·lo aged on lees.
Availability: In stock
The low-yielding, over 50-year-old vines are planted in a single estate with limestone soils, Finca l'Avellà, located in the highest area of the DO Penedès.
After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were cold-macerated and fermented at a low temperature.
Then HMR White 2018 was aged for some months on its lees.
This white wine from Penedès has a production of 20,000 bottles.
The wine HMR White has a pale yellow colour with some steely tinges.
Clean and elegant, this Xarel·lo suggests aromas of wet earth, bitter herbs, white fruit and a dash of citrus. On the background, White insinuates a touch of fennel and some mineral undertones.
Fresh and crisp, this wine by Heretat Mont Rubí has a linear, solid structure and a nice mineral core nuanced by citrus and bitter herbs. This white wine from Penedès ends with some plesant notes of butter and white flowers.
|Our personal opinion||
Once again, White 2018 proves that Xarel·lo is not a showy variety, but an unassuming, though rather deep one.
