Atonit is one of Nuria's top wines, made from Xarel-lo grapes that Nuria acquired from her friend and winemaker Ton Rimbau. The vineyard is farmed under permaculture with no plowing or working of the soils, and the vines for Atonit are around 50 years old, planted on clay over limestone. The wine was aged in about half stainless steel and half used French oak, and bottled without fining, filtration, or added sulfites. There is a growing interest and passion for Xarel-lo from winemakers who are better understanding it's potential for age-worthy wines, besides it's common role as a regional grape used for sparkling wines. Very GOOD Xarel-lo from older vines, on healthy soils, can make impressive wines and the renaissance of this uniquely Mediterranean grape variety is just beginning! This is very GOOD Xarel-lo, not just for the natural wine aficionados, if anything it's more for the Chablis drinker or lover of unique and singular white wines.
