We are over the moon to announce the arrival of our latest private label bottling made for us by Celler Cal Costas in the Alt-Penedès. Celler Cal Costas is a fourth generation family estate working organically with indigenous Catalan grape varieties in the fossil rich, calcareous soils this region west of Barcelona is famed for.
An exclusive cuvée to Gnarly Vines and our sister outfit Clapton Craft, the wine is 100% Xarel·lo made from dry-farmed, high-altitude vines grown at 480m above sea level. Mineral and saline with fine citrus, wild flower and spice aromas supported by mouthwatering acidity; this is eminently thirst-quenching but with a creamy lees character that makes it suitable for pairing with richer winter fair.
With label artwork by the wonderful Gavin Connell, we are really delighted with how this one has turned out and will be pouring it by the glass in store for the foreseeable future. Retail price is £17 and we're also offering a special introductory case price of £95 for six.
