Clos Lentiscus Perill Blanc Àmfora Xarello 2018

Penedès, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainThis 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 bergamot, wild tangerine, crab apple, rambutan along an alive, acidic, and astringent palate. There's a kiss of honey sweetness though this is a dry orange wine.Tasted: 08 March 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
