10/01/2016 – Mas Candi, Desig Blanc 2014

(2016) From a small collective of four farmers, working indigenous vines planted by their ancestors in the northeat of Spain, this is 100% Xarel.lo, one of the principle varieties in Cava, and just occasionally popping up in table wines. This has a punchy, slightly sherbetty nose of crisp nutty apple and lime, a touch of lime blossom too, a hint of Epsom salts. On the palate it is just as vivacious, crackling over the tongue quite delightfully, long and racy with citrus and salt in the finish. A delight, and packed with character.
