Winemaking Notes: Grapes were carefully selected in the vineyard. Once put into crates, they were taken straight to the press. Whole bunches were pressed to avoid oxidation and the get the best quality must. No additives of any kind were used including sulfites and yeast (no pieds de cuve either). The juice fermented without temperature control in a 1,000-liter ceramic amphora and a 1,600-liter oak foudre. The amphora and foudre were blended and bottled without stabilization or filtration.

    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.
