Variety: Pansa Blanca (also known as Xarel-lo)
The family behind Alta Alella has spent their entire life dedicated to wine; that would be husband and wife duo Josef and Cristina. They’ve always been surrounded by vineyards and bottles; so it is only natural! There is a complete commitment to nature, yet desire to keep with trends. Though the winery is young, the family continually push themselves to learn new things with each vintage. The wines are very low intervention with no added sulfites; little is done to the wines after the grapes have been pressed.
“Gafarró” is the name of the bird that spends its time in the shrubs next to the vineyards. The Pansa Blanca (or Xarel-lo) is made in a style like the Eiswein, a sweet white wine made with no added sulfites. This is an unctuous and rich dessert wine with a balance of acidity and minerality. There are notes of honey and sun-dried apricot, a wine lovely to pair with cheeses or fruit-based sweets.
