- Presentation case
The Xarel·lo comes from a single vineyard, “La Vinya del Bessó” (The Vineyard of the Calf/Twin). This vineyard is the home to original vines planted in 1937-40 and a second planting in 1950. The vineyard is situated next to the “Tarumbes Creek”, and has slight slope running northward. The soil is alluvial, loamy clay and calcareous, with tiny chalk formations.
The must derived from the Xarel·lo grapes of the Vinya del Bessó is fermented at low temperature in inert tanks, and underwent a weekly stirring of the lees until the second week of February, at which point the wine was clarified and later bottled on the March month. This wine can be enjoyed during a number of years, as it will evolve and develop with time, in juxtaposition to lighter styles of wines meant to be drunk within a year.
