Tasting notes on the wine:

"This xarello is made using the ancestral method, which means the fermentation is paused midway and then finished in the bottle — just be careful when opening. The reward is refreshing saline notes, ripe pears, apples, vanilla, and cream, plus a dash of smoke and spice on the finish." — Isabelle Legeron

About the winemaker: 

"Celler de les Aus vines enjoys gorgeous sea views — they’re located just over a mile away from the Mediterranean. Dry-farmed (no irrigation involved), the vines grow on decomposed granitic, sandy slopes and terraces, 330 and 800 feet above sea level, which brings a cooling freshness to the grapes." — Isabelle Legeron
