Description

100% Xarel-lo. Pepe Raventos comes the lustrious winemaking family of Raventos i Blanc and though Pepe branched off to start making biodynamic wines at Can Sumoi with his friend Francesc Escala, he bottles some biodynamic wines under his own name. This is an insanely small project that is vinified in the garage of Raventos i Blanc. This skin-contact Xarel-lo has electric acidity and minerality with no sulfur added at any point.

Tasting Notes
I love the cloudy white 2017 Vinya del Noguer, a pure Xarello that's in line with the 2015 and is very pure, clean and precise, with no deviations. It has a fresh and tasty palate, long and elegant. These wines are produced without the addition of any oenological products, and this one reminds me of the purity of some wines from Kenjiro in the Jura but with the Mediterranean profile.
