Mas Candí, Penedès Xarel.lo Desig (2019)




Ramón Jané broke 500 years of family tradition in 2006 by vinifying a portion of his grapes with his wife Mercé Cuscó and best friend/oenologist Toni Carbó as Mas Candí—they had always sold their crop to large cava producers. They remain grape growers first, farming biodynamically on the inland edge of the Garraf massif, and plan to keep their production limited. Over centuries of tasting, the Jané family has tailored their farming to focus on indigenous Xarel.lo, which grows best in their living calcareous clay soils.

Biodynamic. 56 year-old bush-trained Xarel.lo, limestone @ 300 m. The Xarello for Desig grows on a limestone ridge overlooking Sant Sadurní d'Anoia which is blasted by cold winds, resulting in a long growing season. Picked, pressed, and given 24 hours of skin-contact before spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel. Aged for 7 months on the fine lees in stainless steel. 580 cs produced
