Mas Codina, Xarel·lo Tradicio, DO Penedès 2019Regular price €19.00
Toni Garriga made just 2,262 bottles of this delicious white wine from the Costers de Lavernó sub-region of the Penedès appellation.
All the fruit is grown on the Mas Codina estate, and the exhilarating, zippy freshness of Xarel·lo is given a new dimension by fermentation and ageing in French and Hungarian oak barrels. (Though Xarel·lo is native to Penedès, and the use of oak in winemaking has a long history, the grapes are gently pressed pneumatically—not, as the label might suggest, by anyone's feet).
This is a clean and shapely white wine with enticing citrus aromas and elegant, silky texture.
The oak influence is subtle, and you could enjoy the Tradicio on its own, but it's a fantastic partner for fresh fish and seafood or poultry and white meat, perfectly capable of going anywhere a decent Chablis can go.
