What can a decade of development do to a sparkling wine? Taste it in this 2009 Ancestral. It's been on sabbatical ever since, quietly waiting for its flavors to fully come into their own. Get rid of the usual fresh aromas of a sparkling wine. Welcome complexity!

Why we love this wine
Sparkling wine made according to a long-kept tradition. The term 'Ancestral' stands for the age-old method of making sparkling wine. Typical for this is the secondary fermentation in the bottle. This Xarel.lo Ancestral has been resting for over 10 years. Thus fresh and fruity scents have given way to ripe and developed aromas that form a beautifully complex bouquet. The 100% Xarel.lo shows its muscles, but also shows its tenderness. Extremely aromatic and full of flavour, with a delicate bubble.
What makes this winery so special
Family winery Vega de Ribes has a rich history. The Bartra Roig family has lived on the La Serra estate since 1540, built around a twelfth-century defense tower, between the Parc del Garraf and the Mediterranean Sea. In addition to grapes, Vega de Ribes also grows olives, carob, almonds and local tree species. Everything according to an organic way of working. Their wines are characterized by the unique nature and local varieties, such as Xarel.lo and Malvasia de Sitges. Among the modest 14 hectares of vineyards is an 80-year-old vine of Xarel.lo. One of the oldest in this area.
Job's Tasting Notes
Bright gold colored with the finest bubbles. This is definitely not your standard sparkling wine! Full of body and taste, balanced by the still present acidity. Aromas of apricot compote, dried flowers and lemon zest sparkle out of your glass.
