 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
Fresh with aromas of juicy peach abounding on the nose, accented by notes of orange peel, it is well-balanced with vibrant acidity and pronounced mineral qualities. Fruit, acid, and body come together seamlessly to showcase the wine’s elegance. A native grape of the region, Albet i Noya’s expression of Xarel.lo is pure, vinified entirely in stainless steel to showcase the natural characteristics of the varietal. Enjoy young.
