Winemaker Notes

Straw yellow with aromas of white-fleshed fruit with hints of aromatic herbs and smokiness. This wine is a true expression of the complexity and minerality of this unique terroir. The Xarel·lo provides the backbone and roundness of the wine, whereas the Riesling provides the elegance and depth.

Pairs perfectly with chargrilled vegetables, white fish, risottos, creamy rice dishes, goes fantastically well with oriental cooking.

James Suckling

Plenty of fresh peaches and white melon on offer here. This has a very attractive, crisp and elegant palate with great freshness. Bright finish. Drink now.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The white blend 2018 Terraprima Blanco has changed to 80% Xarello, 15% Macabeo and 5% Malvasía de Sitges—in the past, it contained Riesling and no Macabeo or Malvasía. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and was bottled unoaked. It's subtle and clean, fresh and elegant, a refreshing white with some floral aromas, a dry palate and very good balance. It's austere and finishes dry.

Can Rafols dels Caus, Spain

The Garraf Massif is a mountain range located south of Barcelona along the Mediterranean coast between the towns Castelldefels and Sitges. Rocky and calcareous, the region is sparsely wooded, carpeted in wild herbs and centered around the Parc Natural Garraf. In this stony, rugged landscape, Carlos Esteva took a dilapidated family estate and turned it into one of the most dynamic properties in Penedès. Starting in 1979, Carlos began to restore his grandfather’s house and replant many of the vineyards and orchards. Now totaling 90ha of vineyards, 2ha of olive trees and 1 ha of almond trees, the farm has been organic since 2008 and has recently introduced biodynamic practices in some vineyards. The rugged, inhospitable landscape presents many varying microclimates which Carlos has taken advantage of by planting over 28 grapes varieties

A superior source of white grapes for the production of Spain’s prized sparkling wine, Cava, the Penedes region is part of Catalunya and sits just south of Barcelona. Medio Penedès is the most productive source of the Cava grapes, Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada. Penedes also grows Garnacha and Tempranillo (here called Ull de Llebre in Catalan), for high quality reds and rosès.

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended white wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used in white wine blends, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied white wine blend, like Chardonnay, would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
