Coster de Bellavista is a magical vineyard of old vines of xarel.lo vermell (red/rose Xarel.lo)  in the village next door to Nulles. Francesc discovered this parcel while running, immediately drawn to the 80+ year old vines planted in goblet and tucked into the forest, and opening up with views towards the north. The soils are predominately calcareous, with clay and a visible concentration of iron. The 2017 vintage has 18 days of skin contact, fermentation and aging in stainless steel. Pure energy with tiny berry fruit, pink pepper and a beautiful salinity that reminds us that we are moments from the Mediterranean Sea.
