Our most ambitious white wine. A faithful reflection of the complexity and elegance of the Xarel.lo from our emblematic Viña de la Casa.
Viña de la Casa, of eastern aspect, on chalky soil formed in the Miocene with the presence of marine fossils with a clay loam texture, with little depth and low organic matter content. Planted in 1970, the vines maintain the traditional goblet formation.
Autumn and winter was a period with contrasting weather conditions. A warm and rainy winter; we accumulated 186 L/m2 of rain, which was very important for filling the water capacity of the soil. The months covering the plant growth period were warm and dry. August began with maximum temperatures over 35 ºC and a growth cycle with very little water. The harvest has resulted in low production levels but very high quality, with good balances for our sparkling wines and excellent health.
The crop year saw a low precipitation level of 486 L/m2 and the average temperature was 15.2 ºC with extreme maximum and minimum temperatures.
Biodynamic viticulture. A vineyard with spontaneous vegetation coverage which affords biodiversity, fertility and gives the soil a lot of life. We add manure from our animals, composted in the winter, and we perform a short goblet pruning.
Use of plants and herbal infusions to minimize the use of copper and sulphur. Control of Lobesia Botrana by means of sexual confusion. Testing of fruit and maturation controls before the harvest. Manual harvest.
The grapes enter the winery by gravity. A special maceration to obtain the desired color intensity and increasing our aromatic complexity. At each stage atmosphere controlled with dry ice. Slow pressing at low pressure, blending the qualities of the musts. Static sedimentation at low temperatures. Alcoholic fermentation separated by soil, in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature and ageing of the 80 % of the wine on full lees for 11 months in french oak casks of 2-3 years of age. The other 20% of the wine ages in a stainless steel tank. 1165 bottles.
100 % Xarel.lo harvested the 12th of September.
