Made from grapes sourced from the 'Vinya dels Fòssils' vineyard, it is no surprise this wine reveals a distinct mineral note. There is a core of intense limey freshness on the palate with a pleasant bitter character to the citrus fruit, accented by a firm saline note. The rush of acidity is exciting and ensures a tight structure. Will certainly reward further patience as it starts to show its autolytic side.
