Grape - Xarel-lo

Where - Alella, Spain

What - We love a big, chunky, rustic looking bottle of wine, and here we have exactly that. This is the perfect example of natural, Spanish skin-contact wine. 

 

Xarel-lo grapes are harvested from the Alta Alella municipality which overlooks the sea. The granite, sandy soils make for strong minerality and the land is always cared for with sustainable practices. 

 

The really exciting aspect of this orange wine is the huge amphoras where it ferments. These are made from clay and soil dug up from the local area. It is also aged in this amphoras on its lees, before bottling without sulphite. 

 

The Asarvos is a proper orange crush, with notes of rose water, lavender, steel, Bakewell tart and big, juicy oranges. The good acidity and relatively short finish means it disappears damn quick. The ideal party starter!

 

Orange, fresh, funky. Vegan. Low intervention. Organic certified. ABV 12%.
