NV Castell d'Age Cava Xarel.lo Reserva «1988»
Region: Spain, Penedès
Grape Variety: Xarel.lo
Sparkling, dry white | Sashimi
The 1988 was named after the year the Junyent family decided to build their first wine cellar, when they decided to do winemaking seriously. Coupled with the intention to celebrate their Catalan roots by using perhaps the most famous native white grape, this is their first ever 100% Xarel.lo Cava.
Being a rather aromatic varietal, expect lots of green and grassy notes with a hint of melon. Steely and chalk, very herbaceous-like, with some phenolic ripeness at the end. Incredibly well-balanced with a clean finish. We recommend having this on a Summer's day picnic, or with a fresh salad as it will complement its delicate flavours well.
