Details

The single estate wine Llopart Clos dels Fòssils is made from Chardonnay (65%) and  Xarel·lo (35%).

Produced by Caves Llopart, one of Penedès' oldest wineries, the singularity of this organic Spanish white wine comes from the soil in which the vines grow. It has a limestone stratum of marine origin with an abundance of marine fossils which gives the wine a deep minerality and an interesting saline quality. 

Harvested at an optimal ripening state, the grapes were cold-soaked, gently crushed and put into stainless steel tanks, where they were fermented using only indigenous yeasts. Then Llopart Clos dels Fòssils 2017 was macerated on its lees, transferred into French oak barrels and aged there for 4 months.

This original organic white wine from Penedès produced by Caves Llopart will improve in the bottle until 2021.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine from Penedès Clos del Fòssils has a straw yellow colour with golden iridiscences and some grey tinges.

Nose

Delicate and complex, this blend of Chardonnay & Xarel.lo displays aromas of white fruit, honey and ripe pineapple along with notes of dry fruit, toast, nutmeg and some smokey hints. The wine continuously evolves in the glass.

 

Palate

The palate of this organic white wine by Cavas Llopart is yummy and fresh. Ripe pears, honey and quince. Some refreshing citrus notes, some saline touches and delicate hints of smoke and toast. Quite precise, with a good balance between acidity and sweetness. Long mineral aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

An original organic white wine from Penedès, Llopart Clos dels Fòssils 2017 pairs beautifully with a well-laid cheese platter.

  1. Llopart review by Foster on 10/24/2017
    Value

    Successful blend of creamy, unctuous, sexy Chardonnay, with a touch of Xarello that gives thrust, acidity and bite to the wine. Highly recommended.
