    Xarel.lo Collectoin

    Grape variety

    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.

    Elaboration

    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. This wine is fermented and aged on its lees, part in concrete, ovoid-shaped tanks and the rest in terracotta amphoras.

    Tasting notes

    Appearance: Golden with greenish glints.

    On the nose: Intense with good definition. Aromas of ripe pears and stone fruits (apricot, loquats), citrus notes (lemon jam, citronella, lime peel).

    On the palate: Pleasant on entry, medium-bodied, unctuous. The grapefruit aromas, with their characteristic bitter notes, come through again via retro-olfaction and add to the pronounced acidity, giving the wine an intense finish.

    Food Pairings

    White and oily fish. Seafood, particularly oysters. Appetisers, cured meats and pasta dishes. Rice dishes such paella and risotto. In order to enjoy this wine to the full, we recommend drinking it between 9 – 11°C. Serve in a large glass, sit back and enjoy.
