Varieties: Parellada, Macabeo, Chardonnay, Xarel·lo and Malvasía de Sitges.
A young, dry white wine made from a careful selection of the grape varietals grown in Can Feixes, carefully nurtured to express the primary fruit and floral characteristics so typical of our grapes. Throughout the years, the dedication of the Huguet family to our vines have made this wine a true classic that ranks amongst the great white wines of the Penedès.
WINEMAKING: Only own harvest. Selected picking by hand of the different varietals exclusively from our own organic vineyards followed by a second selection at the bodega. Exclusively first must (free-run juice), obtained by gentle pneumatic tank-press. Clarification by natural precipitation and static decanting. Fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks.
AGEING: A young wine matured in stainless steel tanks in contact with lees during the months before bottling.
Fresh, fresh, fresh, this little wine brings nice energy and good citrus and mineral character. Acidity adds energy and length to the flavors that please but do not overwhelm. Get yourself a big plate of seafood - it does not matter if it's from the raw bar, the frier, the grill or the broiler, this will crush it!
90 pts Robert Parker Wine Advocate for Perspective, the last rating was the 2018 (not this unrated 2020):
It has a long, fresh and non-invasive personality and can deal with a wide range of dishes, not only fish and seafood. It's a multi-grape blend of Parellada, Macabeo, Chardonnay, Xarello, and a little Malvasía de Sitges with the idea that none of the varieties should dominate the aromas or flavors. It's shy, elegant, and fresh, with a classical and elegant profile, which is the house style here.
