Winegrowing in the Massís del Garraf. Small family winery in Olivella (Barcelona).

Ulivel·la 2013

The meticulous harvest of the grapes from this parcel in the Massís del Garraf when they are at their optimal ripening allows the Xarel·lo to express soft anise, ripe white fruit and citrus aromas, in addition to a great acidity. The small percentage of Malvasia de Sitges also adds some interesting complexity to this wine. 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.
