A dark white wine with a surprisingly fresh character. Extraordinarily invigorating and chock full of juiciness. Its asset: a rare grape that found its way to the Catalan coast during the time of the Romans and Greeks.

Why we love this wine
You don't come across the Malvasia de Sitges very often anymore. Winery Vega de Ribes is doing everything it can to save it from extinction. In this bright dark yellow wine, the grape is acclaimed by a careful selection of companions. The Xarel.lo, Garnatxa Blanca and Sauvignon Blanc complete the grape parade. Long pressed and slowly fermented at a low temperature. Selecció Blanc is a beautiful expression of what grows and flourishes in the Mediterranean landscape. With clear notes of flowers, citrus and ripe fruit. Great with an easily digestible bite, but also extremely suitable for drinking on its own.
What makes this winery so special
Family winery Vega de Ribes has a rich history. The Bartra Roig family has lived in 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
Quite dark in color for a white wine. Particularly aromatic, with hints of dried flowers, ripe red apple and fresh citrus. Intense in taste, mild in body. A wonderfully refreshing acidity and a fairly long aftertaste.
