Finca Parera 2019 Clar Xarelo 750ml
80% Xarello and the remainder a blend of Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Malvasia de Sitges, Parellada and Garnatxa Blanca. Grown certified biodynamically on calcareous clay soils of the Sant Llorenç d'Hortons vineyard at around 300m high, in the Alt Penedès Montserratí. Grapes are harvested by hand with 30% stems and all the skins into stainless steel tanks for maceration/infusion at low temperature.
On the skins for 5-12 days depending on the variety. After a couple of days spontaneous fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts, and without moving the cap or stirring the wine it continues fermenting and aging in the tank until spring. The wine is pressed and moved into clay amphora for around a year longer aging. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, with zero SO2 or any additions on a descending moon.
