100% Xarel.lo, from old vines grown in the mountains "vinyes de muntanya", as Joan says in Catalan! As always at Costador, the vines are cultivated organically, and the grapes are harvested by hand, with controlled yields. Vinification is sulphur-free, this is an orange wine with a minimum 12 weeks of maceration on the skins in clay amphorae, followed by maturation in those same clay amphorae. Neither fined nor filtered., without added sulfites.
