2016 Mas Candi Penedes Xarello "Desig", 750ml

Availability: In stock (1)

A crisp, dry melon and pear toned white wine from Catalonia. The grapes from many farmers here end up being sold to Cava producers, which is how this estate got its start. Now they are making their own wines including this still example of xarel-lo, a native grape noted for its refreshing acidity. Biodynamic farming, no to low sulfites and very small production.

From the mouth of the importer (Trumpet Wines):

"Ramón Jané broke 500 years of family tradition in 2006 by vinifying a portion of his grapes with his wife Mercé Cuscó and best friend/oenologist Toni Carbó as Mas Candí—they had always sold their crop to large cava producers. They remain grape growers first, farming biodynamically on the inland edge of the Garraf massif, and plan to keep their production limited. Over centuries of tasting, the Jané family has tailored their farming to focus on indigenous xarel•lo, which grows best in their living calcareous clay soils."
