There are few words that roll off the English tongue as gracelessly as Autochthonous. (pronounced like “All talk, then us”). It sounds better in Catalan, and as the name of this winery, stands for Albert Jane’s founding principle for the cellar. He only works with grapes native to Catalonia, primarily the red Sumoll and this purely Catalan white grape, Xarel.lo. The vineyards are planted on poor clay soils, at 1200-1600 feet, and about 20 minutes in a car from the Mediterranean. From the struggle of growing out of infertile soils, the wine gets its depth and intensity. From the proximity to the sea, it has a mineral-scented freshness and lively cant. The nose offers peach, nectarine, acacia, fennel seed, basil and bee pollen with intensity to compare to your favorite Chenin Blancs. The palate is equally generous with flavor, with lemon juice, pear, smoked peaches, clay soil and fresh white flowers all transmitted in a lean and juicy medium that dances on the palate. For food pairing, we recommend pairing this native Catalonian wine with Catalan cuisine. That means fresh ingredients, simple preparations, and lots of variety!
