Wine Description:
This exceptional single-varietal Xarel·lo spends time deep in the cellar within concrete eggs, allowing it to interact with oxygen in a fair and precise manner. This unique aging method imparts vibrancy and freshness to the Xarel·lo, preserving its aromas and delivering them gracefully to the glass. The combination of concrete, acacia, and stainless steel further enhances the typically floral notes, evoking memories of honey and nuts that beautifully complement various desserts. Carefully crafted, this Xarel·lo reflects the time spent in the cellar through its nuanced and exquisite profile, offering a sensory delight for those who appreciate meticulous winemaking.

Wine Expert Note:

Albet i Noya El Fanio Xarel-lo Penedès is a white wine from the Penedès region in Catalonia, Spain. This wine is made primarily from the Xarel-lo grape variety, which is commonly used in the production of Cava, a sparkling wine from the same region. In the glass, Albet i Noya El Fanio Xarel-lo Penedès displays a pale straw color with greenish hues, indicating its youthfulness. On the nose, it offers delicate aromas of citrus fruits such as lemon and grapefruit, accompanied by floral notes of white flowers and a hint of herbs. On the palate, this wine showcases a crisp and refreshing acidity, which is characteristic of the Xarel-lo grape. It presents flavors of zesty lemon, ripe green apple, and a touch of tropical fruit, providing a delightful balance between fruitiness and acidity. The wine has a medium body and a smooth texture, leading to a clean and lingering finish. Albet i Noya El Fanio Xarel-lo Penedès is a versatile wine that can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or paired with a variety of dishes. Its vibrant acidity makes it a great match for seafood, particularly shellfish and grilled fish. It also complements light salads, fresh cheeses, and vegetable-based dishes.
