Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe apple, flint and citrus fruit. The palate is bright with ripe lemon acidity.

Producer details

The Can Macią estate in Odena - around 50km north west of Barcelona and just 10km from the foothills of Montserrat - dates back 800 years and still belongs to the same family, of which Jordi Casanovas Bohigas is a direct descendant. He, together with his daughter Maria Casanovas Giró, run the winery and estate. The Can Macią estate has over 35 hectares of vineyard, along with forests and wheat fields. The family also owns the 54 hectare Can Batllevell estate in Gelida (half-way between Odena and Barcelona) where its limestone soils and Mediterranean climate lead to early-maturing grapes. These estates combined mean that the family has access to Macabeo, Xarel-lo, Parellada, Garnatxa Blanca, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon - with some vines over 50 years old.

In the vineyard

Grapes are sourced from 35ha of vines cultivated on the Can Macia estate, near the ANoia river basin, near Odena. These low yielding bush-trained vines are well suited to the production of still wine.

In the winery

The old vine Xarel-lo undergoes temperature controlled fermentation and is kept on the lees for 4 months to give added texture.

Food Recommendations

Perfect for grilled white fish, chicken caesar salad or light summer dishes.
