Available for:

Fresh, fruity and floral aromas. Citrus notes and fullness complimented by stony minerality on the palate and crisp acidity. A young, dry white wine made from a careful selection of the native grape varietals grown at Can Feixes.

The historic Can Feixes estate is situated on gravelly slopes above the 400-meter level in an amphitheater at the tree line near the famous Montserrat pinnacle, which forms Penedès' northern boundary. The farthest Penedès vineyard from the Mediterranean, temperature variation here is more Continental in its extremes, the drier climate more conducive to grape health. The altitude and mountain terrain constitute the tiny viticultural home of the Parellada variety, locally known as Montonec ("grape of the mountain"). Recognized as the region's Grand Cru, Can Feixes sells the majority of its grapes and a large portion of the fermented wines as well. Only the best grapes, and subsequently the best wines, are kept for production under the family label. Total vineyard area of approximately 120 hectares (300 acres) is planted to Parellada (Montonec), Macabeo, Chardonnay, Tempranillo, and Cabernet, with small amounts of Pinot Noir.

Vineyard plantation at Can Feixes is documented back to the year 1400, registered by Sr. Jaume Feixes. The estate has continuously produced wine since 1690, the Huguet family acquiring the property following an interruption in descendancy at the turn of the 20th century.

Today's modern bodega includes subterranean aging cellars with pupitres for manual riddling of the CAVA, bottle storage and oak cooperage for the aging of red wine. Viticulture and enology are handled respectively by brothers Joan and Josep María Huguet.

Aromas of nectarine, ginger and honeysuckle waft from the glass. This full-textured white is bright from first sip and has flavors of pineapple, passion fruit and rose that evaporate into a vivid finish.
