100% Xarel.lo from organic grapes. The wine is certified with the CCPAE quality mark from the Consell Català de la Producció Agraria y Ecologicala (Catalan Council of Organic Agricultural Production). "Font Jui" is a family estate of 4 hectares of Xarel.lo, with very particular clay-limestone soil.
Harvested by hand and selected on a sorting table. The grapes are cooled to 0-5 °C in order to carry out a pre-fermentation maceration. Pressing of the whole grapes. We only use the free run juice. Temperature-controlled fermentation at 14 º C. Part of this wine is fermented and aged in 300 litre French oak barrels (fine grain and medium toast). Only a few new barrels are used and the remainder are second and third vintage barrels in order to respect the character of the grape to the full. Ageing on the lees.
Appearance: Pale yellow with slight golden straw nuances.
On the nose: Distinctive personality. Expressive stone fruit aromas, loquats and peaches. Ripe citrus fruit against a herbal backdrop - seductive notes of fennel. The wine gradually opens when left to breathe in the glass and we discover the elegant result of its ageing - aromas of almond shells, roasted sunflower seeds, toffee and exotic spices. Shows a slight saline touch.
On the palate: Pleasant on entry, full and unctuous. The fruit notes come through again via retroolfaction. The ensemble is rounded off by an agreeable refreshing sensation.
A wine with endless gastronomic matches. White and blue fish. Seafood, we suggest trying it with oysters. Medium strength, soft cheeses. To appreciate the wine at its best, we recommend that it is served at 10-12 Cº in a large, balloon wine glass.
