10th generation winemaker Manel Arinyó largely makes sparkling wines from native Catalonian grapes, but here has made a still bottling of a unique rose of the very uncommon Xarel-lo Vermell variety. Xarel-lo is a fairly widely planted white grape, but there are a few plantings in Catalonia of its naturally pink-berried mutation called Xarel-lo Vermell. This is made with skin contact for a pink-hued, ramato-style wine. Certified organic farming with biodynamic practices. Ferments are all naturally done, no filtering or fining, and no sulfites added.
Amazing tropical notes of papaya and tangerines, a refreshingly bright palate, and noticeably raw with a touch of funk. Pours a lovely orangish pink hue with natural cloudiness. Liter bottle!
