2012 Celler Pardas Xarel-lo

So this is interesting – a limited production white made from Xarel-lo (one of the grapes used to make Cava – sparkling wine). What’s more – this is bottle 1666 of 4102! Stone fruit, apricot, and pear on the nose with raw white nuts, sourdough bread innards, and a whiff of marzipan. Underripe apricots, limes, and pear on the palate with some powdered raw nuts and a hint of yeastiness.
