The QX or Quatre Xarel·los is a precise white wine with an aromatic purity. The extreme care taken with the vineyard work and the minimum intervention in the winery produces an honest wine which is a faithful reflection of its landscape. The young yet knowledgeable team at Mas Candí have created the Quatre Xarel·los (meaning four Xarel·lo grapes) using organic grapes from four different plots vinified in four different materials: oak, acacia, chestnut wood, and clay. Discrete toasted and caramelized tones blend easily with ripe fruit, aromatic herbs, and wild fennel. Thanks to the time spent ageing on its lees, the QX has creaminess and smoothness which fill the mouth and reach the inside of your cheeks. After the first few sips, you start to notice a buttery taste, but it remains in the background leaving the main stage to a pristine fruit which reminds us of fresh quince. Small meadow flowers soothe its fantastic acidity while its wood can be appreciated more through its colour and feel than through its aroma. Salinity and bitter almonds embellish the finish and become clearer after the wine has stood in the glass a few minutes. All of this earns this wine a deserved place among the best Catalan wines every year. Harvesting grapes at their peak moment is the key to the Mediterranean maturity and finding an impeccable balance among the primary aromas, the smoke from the wood, and the fatty feeling of southern wines. The QX exudes typicity and, almost like a great Catalan cava without the sparkle, it transports us to the wonderful landscapes of Catalan vineyards and gives an insight into the warmth of the people working the land.
