Why this and not another xarel.lo wine?
We believe that it is our most noble variety, no other grape allows our terroir as squeeze xarel.lo. Also think it is the indigenous white variety has more potential for aging: alcohol high acidity, total climate adaptation …
But xarel.lo defend as a matter of tradition. With brown Xarel.lo we want to express our personal insight from a current perspective, I humbly wine growers manufactured nearly all their houses in the past in our country.
It is our belief that the variety has all the skills and xarel.lo potential to become a great vintage wine and that the future lies in the recovery of native varieties, our Pardas Xarel.lo born .
A truly distinctive wine, viticulture and a reflection of our fair land.
The result is a complex and fine wine with aging potential.
