Review

Finca Viladellops Xarel·lo is a particularly refined wine, with superb maturity yet it still remains fresh and subtle. The ‘xxx’ on the label refers to the three vineyard estates of Xarel·lo used in its production. This is the winery’s top white, using the best grapes from the best and some of the oldest vineyards, and includes 30% of the very rare Xarel·lo Rosado variety, of which few hectares are left.

A bright golden colour, the wine has a floral, buttery nose, with scarcely discernible notes from lengthy ageing, and a show of mineral elements after time spent on its lees. It is full and complex on the palate, maintaining its freshness and balance with just the right amount of acidity.

Matured on its lees and with batonnage. Fermented and aged in French oak barrels for up to 12 months.

Finca Viladellops

Located at an altitude of 200-250 metres above sea level, in the rugged terrain of the Garraf Massif, Finca Viladellops produces wines with a discernible character of the terroir. The soils, which are poor, determine the lack of vigour in the plants, the low yields and small berries, and provide the wines with minerality, as well as iodine and saline notes to the whites, and chalky notes to the reds. The large amount of sediments and marine fossils found in this land are clear...
