Vilarnau Cava Els Capricis Xarel·lo Castanyer
VILARNAU Cava Els Capricis Xarel·lo Castanyer
- 100% Xarel·lo
25% of the Xarel·lo grapes in the coupage have been fermented and subsequently aged for 6 months in chestnut wood barrels.
Els Capricis de Vilarnau is an innovative winemaking initiative deriving from Cavas Vilarnau's constant striving to produce the best base wines to use to make our premium cavas.
This Xarel·lo has been created from the indigenous Penedès grape variety that bears the same name.
Its unique feature lies in the fact that it is fermented in chestnut wood barrels that are made by hand by a local cooper who uses wood from the Montseny forests.
We have thus returned to the traditional methods used in Catalan masias to age white wines in general and Xarel·lo in particular.
