This is the 2nd vintage of this Spanish white wine by Ramon Canals produced in the DO Penedès. Interestingly, Onna is made primarily from old-vines Xarel·lo, complemented with a small amount of Gewürztraminer, both coming from organically farmed vineyards.
The Gewürztraminer was harvested in late August, while the Xarel·lo vines were reaped in mid September. Separately vinified, the Xarel·lo grapes were first cold macerated for several hours with the skins. After that, both varieties were gently pressed, and then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature. Once fermentation was finished, Onna 2018 was blended and bottled.
Drink this organic white wine from Penedès over the next 12 months.
The white wine Onna has a pale yellow colour, clean and bright.
Fresh and enticing aromas, a really original nose coming from the unusual blend of Xarel·lo and Gewürztraminer. Juicy white fruit, a pinch of dry fruit and some lively tropical remembrances over a lively bouquet of flowers.
Savoury and fresh, Onna Xarel·lo ecològic from Ramon Canals has good balance and a great acidity. Well-structured, with dim notes of citrus and garrigue, and a remembrance of jasmine and passion fruit. Delicious finish.
