PRODUCTION

Harvested by hand and selected on a sorting table. The grapes are cooled to 0-5°C in order to carry out a maceration during 14 hours. Fermented in 3000 litre French oak barrels (fine grain and medium toast). We do not look for toasted flavours, but for a light mineralization.

THE LAND

100% Xarel.lo from organic grapes. The wine is certified with the CCPAE quality mark from the ‘Consell Català de la Producció Agraria y Ecològica’ (Catalan Council of Organic Agricultural Production). “Font Jui” is a family estate of 4 hectares of Xarel.lo, with very particular clay-limestone soil.

TASTING NOTES 

star

APPEARANCE

Onion skin colour.

NOSE

The wine’s fruit comes through in the form of pear, apple, pink pomelos, and wild strawberry aromas. Mediterranean woodland herbs such as thyme, fennel and laurel. A floral hint of broom. The wine has a very spicy personality, reminiscent of Sichuan peppercorns. Pronounced mineral character.

PALATE

Fresh on entry, coating the palate. Good structure. Very pronounced, well-balanced, excellent acidity on the finish. Harmonious with nice final taste sensations.

FOOD PAIRINGS

This wine pairs well with a wide range of dishes. Excellent with appetisers. It goes very well with specialty cuisine, from Japanese  (nigiris, sashimi, makis) to South American (ceviche, adobos, escabeches). Its lovely acidity makes it a good match for rice dishes, such as paella and risotto, marmitako (Basque tuna stew) and fish/seafood stews in general.
