  • Other Information:This wine comes from a single vineyard, but there is one particularity, this parcel has many differences on soil and insolation. So we decided to make three different harvests from the same vineyard , in order to acheive three different grapes with the goal of producing a complex 100% Xarel·lo coming from the same vineyard. Every harvest fermented separated with wild yeast. After every fermentation, each part aged for 3-4 month in different materials. 1st part: stainless steal fermented and aged for 3 month in demijohn. 2nd part: maceration of 1 day, stainless steal fermented and aged for 3 month in demijohn. 3rd part: skincontact fermentation (maceration of three weeks) and aged for 4 month in 500 L new oak barrel with blonde toast.After every ageing process, the blendings were made and the final wine achived. A wine to feel verietal expression and structure.
