2021 'Blanc sense papers'

Bodega Clandestina

Regular price $60 750ml Sale

100% Xarel·lo from the Fassina vineyard (56 years old) in Sant Sebastià dels Gorgs and as a novelty this year he incorporated grapes from the Molinet vineyard (62 years old), also located in Sant Sebastià. Three separate harvests were completed in September, each approximately a week apart. The first was direct pressed, the 2nd received a 24 hour skin contact, and the 3rd had three weeks skin contact. The first two were aged in demijohn for 4 months, and the 3rd in concrete for 4 months, before blending. Not fined or filtered. Zero added SO2. 12% alc.

Restrained notes of yellow plum, apple and nectarine. There is an underlying pecan saltiness about it too. Beautiful texture with lots of freshness and a brine-like finish. Juicy and bright, low in alcohol, with gentle phenolics. Finishes with citrus infused acidity, that gives excellent length. Extremely well balanced and crafted. Geez this is great!
