The meticulous harvest of the grapes from this parcel in the Massís del Garraf when they their optimal ripening allows the Xarel·lo to express soft anise and citrus aromas, in addition to a great acidity. Aging is done with the lees, conferring a perfect texture to the wine. In the mouth, the mineral notes characteristic of the terroir stand out. This wine has a long aftertaste.
