 Vinous 87 points (Sep 2012)
Bright straw. Lemon zest, chalk and white flowers on the nose and palate. Racy and precise if a bit tart, with good finishing cut and clarity. -- Josh Raynolds
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Apr 2012)
The 2011 Xa Xarello, from 53-year-old vines in the Ordal Mountain area, receives a five-day skin contact and no oak aging. It has a clean, resinous bouquet with touches of pine. The palate is well-balanced, simple but clean, with fresh dried apricot, lemongrass and citrus lemon notes that lead to a harmonious, crisp waxy finish. This represents fine value. Drink now.

Wine maker notes
This wine was made with cold maceration of the skins before pressing. Only the first fraction of the pressing was used. After fermenting at 16C for a month, it was racked off, and after stabilising with the cold winter temperatures it was bottled. This young wine will maintain it's fruit and aromas for the first two years after bottling, after which its freshness will diminish and its body and power will become more evident. Serve cold, preferably with light meals. Suitable for Vegans .
