2021 Albet I Noya “Curios” Xarel-lo

From $14

With an attractive pale straw yellow, this wine elegantly showcases everything Xarel·lo can bring to the table: fresh fruit like pear, green apple or quince, citric notes and orange or almond blossom. In the mouth it is fresh with lively acidity and a slightly bitter finish typical of the flagship variety of the Penedès.

Pairs with light meals, salads, appetizers, and makes for a refreshing summer sangria.

In 1903, during the phylloxera crisis, our great great grandfather, Joan Albet i Rovirosa, arrived in the Penedès to work the the vineyards at the Can Vendrell de la Codina estate, in Sant Pau d’Ordal. And here he stayed. For five generations, the Albet family, tenant farmers of Can Vendrell, have farmed, loved and watched over the vines that are now the protagonists of our wines.

But that wasn’t enough, and in the late seventies an opportunity knocked on our door and, restless as ever, we decided to embrace it. A Danish company was searching the Penedes for an organic wine grower. Nobody had ever heard of organic wines. But curiosity won us over and that’s how we threw ourselves into this adventure.
