2017 Xarel-lo (Mas Codina)

Mas Codina, Xarel-lo, Penedes, Spain 2017

{organic}

100% Xarel-lo

PINEAPPLE & HONEYDEW, FENNEL & MEDITERRANEAN MINERALITY

Xarel-lo is Cava’s not-so-secret weapon, typically occupying relatively small percentages of the northeastern Spanish sparklers yet infusing them with the lion’s share of their exotic undercurrents. This very special, non-bubbly rendition from Mas Codina showcases the variety’s intrinsic topicality, spice, and power in a full-figured package complete with zesty acidity which engages the brakes before unctuousness is reached. File next to Vouvray Sec.

Serving suggestion: Escalivada (grilled peppers, eggplant, & tomatoes) w/ anchovies on flatbread w/ aioli.
