In the words of Ramon: “nothing allows us to express our terroir as Xarel-lo.”
The Xarel-lo 2011 is one the estate’s longest aging wines due to the 60+ year old vines' adaptation to the semi-arid climate and limestone soils, high alcohol content and bracing acidity.
Perfectly expressing the Pardas approach, this wine is made from 100% Xarel-lo. A considered use of new and old oak and concrete adds further depth and complexity to the wine.
There is a fantastic intensity to the nose. Reflecting the landscape of the property, strong rosemary, fennel, white truffle, liquorice and subtle bay leaf are evident. In the mouth, the wine delivers ample weight, yet elegance. Ripe stone fruit, sesame and ginger is balanced by persistent minerality and acidity. The finish continues with liquorice and an intriguing bitterness.
