Amós Bañeres is making superb micro Cuvées from a few tiny parcels of family vineyard. Amos top wine - the name means the dark side of the vineyard because it’s north-facing so ripens more slowly, more intensely. 

very original expression of Xarel-lo expresses a deep connection with the earth, rich and complex. Extraordinary texture of silk and satin. Great aromatic complexity with orange, peach tea, baked apple fruit with hints of vanilla and black pepper.

farming & cellar: organic, limestone, calcareous clay and sand soils. One week of skin contact during the fermentation with wild yeasts and fermentation and ageing for 16 months in barrel.
