White Wine White 2020
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 vineyard with limestone soils, Finca L'Avellà, located in the highest area of DO Penedès.
After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were cold-macerated and fermented at a low temperature. Then HMR White 2020 was aged for some months on its lees.
Pair this white wine from Penedès with light dishes, oriental cuisine and tapas.
The wine HMR White is pale yellow 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, it insinuates a touch of fennel and some mineral undertones.
Fresh and crisp, this wine from Heretat Mont Rubí has nice mineral core with a pinch of citrus and bitter herbs. Long finish with some plesant notes of white flowers.
|Our personal opinion||
Once again, White 2020 proves that Xarel·lo is not a showy variety, but an unassuming, though rather deep one.
