2019 Els Vinyerons 'Lluerna' Xarel-lo

Login to view price.

Lluerna ('Firefly' in Catalan, the cuvées are named after the insects found in the vineyards).

Still white wine made of 100% Xarel-lo.

Direct pressed into stainless steel, always blended with approx 10% from the previous year which is held in used French oak barrels. This seems to be one of Amós's tricks, where the aged wine provides stability, eliminating the need for any preservative/sulphur dioxide to be added.

Fresh, light, stonefruity - more acidity than the previous vintage.

No added sulphites (but well made, stable and good for glass pour).
