"This is 1938-planted Xarel-lo from El Buschet vineyard, in the mineral-laden Garraf Mountains sub zone. After picking and leaving with stems on skins for 15 days, this spends 6 months in amphora before a light filtration and bottling. Pouring a shining yellow gold with a very light haze, this streams tight apricot, pear skin, crab apple, young Mirabelle plum, and rambutan along a slight palate, rinsed with bergamot astringency, and grippy from time in amphora. Acidity is stencilled and brisk. Very natural, clean, and unique." - Le Sommelier
