Organic white wine D.O Penedès

100% red xarel·lo. A rarity from old times

Can Descregut was the first winery to recover this old grape variety.

Harvest 2013

 

GRAPE VARIETIES

100% red xarel.lo. Red xarel.lo is a genetic mutation of white xarel.lo. It is rarely cultivated in the central Penedès. It comes from old vines, planted 60 years ago, giving less grapes but with more taste concentration. The grape skin is red, and thicker than the white xarel.lo, giving a different taste (more tropical and less better than white xarel.lo).

 

WINEMAKING

Cold maceration of the skins for about 48 hours, to extract varieties aromas and something of colour.  A static clearing of the must is then carried out at 14 ºC and the alcoholic fermentation with its own natural yeast takes place in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation it ages with their own lees for 4 months, with period stirring.

 

TASTING NOTES

Vibrant yellow-orange colour.

In nose we find apple aromas with a citrus background reminiscent of lime.

Full-body, smooth and elegant flavour.

It pairs well with cheese, rices, and with oven fish dishes.
