Tasting Notes: Known for having high acidity, Xarel-lo can age really well. This 2016 Extrem is drinking great right now (2020). On the nose, lemon citrus, lime blossom, almond hints and ocean smells mix with caramel and honey to create a beautiful bouquet. The palate is round, full, and textured. Lemon citrus and honey flavors wrap around the incredible acidity. The mineral and saline finish is long. Can't wait to see what a year or two more do to this wine.
