Staff Pick Notes

Georgia isn’t the only nation to boast a history of orange wine. Catalonia has a centuries old tradition of white skin contact. Here, winemakers lacked presses and could not separate juice from the grapes. Thus the need to macerate the juice with skins. With the recent popularity of orange wine, now most Catalonian producers have brought back the Brisat tradition. Father and son natural vignerons Mas Goma brings you this treat of skin contact Xarell-o (a component of Cava). Joan and Joan Junior farm their 60 year old vines biodynamically on calcareous soils. Vinification is minimalist and no sulfur is added. The flavor profile includes citrus peel, ginger spice, cream soda, a touch of yeast. Only a portion has seen spent time on the skins so tannins are moderate.At 12.5%, it is so smooth and accessible. Appropriately bottled in a liter.

Xarel-lo

Growing primarily in the northeastern region of Catalonia, Xarel-lo is most famous for its role in the production of the Spanish sparkling wine known as Cava (along with Macabeo and Parellada). Xarel-lo is occasionally bottled on its own as a deliciously crisp still wine, frequently filled with notes of stone fruits and herbs.
