Agusti Torello Mata

XIC Penedes Blanc 2020

$14

The 2020 XIC ( pronounced like ‘cheek’) is a light and playful white from the renowned lands of Penedes in Catalunya, Spain. Made from 100% Xarel-lo, using organically grown estate fruit. Notes of ripe citrus and peach blossom on the palate with a fresh, racy acidity. This is an easy wine to love, dry and crisp enough to stand on its own as an aperitif, and it makes a fabulous partner to seafood and vegetable dishes.
