Agusti Torelló Mata
12 bottle case
XIC (pronounced "cheek")is a still white wine made from 100% Xarel-lo grapes - one of the principal grapes of Cava DO - grown organically in estate vineyards with primarily ancient Calcareous-clay soils, strongly affected by cooling Mediterranean breezes. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks for 21 days, kept a cool temperature of 16 degrees Celsius. The wine then remains on the lees for a further three months prior to bottling.
Our Tasting Note: Bright, pale, lemon-yellow colour. Aromas and flavours of fresh citrus (lime) with notes of stone fruits like peach and apricot, and slight herbal notes. Dry (1.5gr/L RS), with balanced acidity, good structure and a medium/long clean finish. 11.5% alc./vol.. Certified organic and vegan.
Pairing suggestions: Perfect aperitif wine, and with a range of appetizers/tapas. Also with seafood, particularly fresh-water fish, white meats (pork/chicken), and lighter-style vegetarian dishes.
