This well-known Spanish white wine comes from an area with a distinctively mineral soil: the Garraf Massif, a subzone of the DO Penedès,
A single varietal Xarel.lo, the grapes of Viladellops Xarel·lo come from 15 to 25-year-old vines harvested and selected with the utmost care.
Produced by Finca Viladellops, alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks.
After that, Viladellops Xarel·lo 2018 was aged on its lees for some months until being bottled in February 2019.
Drink this organic white wine until 2022. Production around 30.000 bottles.
The white wine Viladellops Xarel.lo has a pale yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
This Xarel·lo from Penedès smells of white fruit, peach, white flowers and aromatic herbs. This wine by Finca Viladellops carries some clean and pure aromas.
Fresh and light, with a crisp acidity and a delicately mineral, salty character typical of a Penedès white wine. Remembrances of citrus, green apples, lychee, almonds and underbrush. Medium finish.
|Our personal opinion||
Pleasantly mineral, Viladellops Xarel·lo 2018 is a nice expression of the Xarel.lo grape.
