Details

A very interesting wine, Pardas Rupestris is produced by the intellectually curious, always self-challenging Celler Pardas winery.

This Spanish white wine is made from an interesting blend of Xarel·lo, Xarel·lo Vermell, Malvasía de Sitges and Macabeo, four indigenous Catalan varieties which make for a rather unique wine.

Since the vineyards are planted in shallow calcareous soils, the roots are in direct contact with the bedrock, a fact that imparts a distinctive minerality to the fruit.

Harvested by hand and carefully selected, the grapes were destemmed and gently crushed prior to fermentation. Then they were macerated for 3 to 4 days, after which Pardas Rupestris 2017 must was drawn off, fermented and aged on its lees for 4 months with periodic stirrings.

A faithful expression of traditional Penedés, this organic white wine should be drunk over the next 2-3 years.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Pardas Rupestris has a clean, bright, pale yellow colour with some steely tinges.

 

Nose

Fresh and expressive, Rupestris by Celler Pardas smells of white flowers, citrus and aniseed. On the background, a perfume of orange blossom, aromatic herbs and deep mineral undertones.

Palate

Fresh and dry, this young white wine from Penedès has a straightforward, no-nonsense quality and a very good acidity. Citrus, freshly-cut grass, jasmine and sour apples. This wine by Celler Pardas has a crisp, medium long finish.

Our personal opinion

The organic wine Pardas Rupestris 2017 is fragrant and pleasant. Perfect for informal gatherings with friends.

    Perfect with pasta and rice dishes. White, but not ethereal.

    Dry, fresh, with a note of berries and a sweet eco at the end. Uncommon and nice.
