Bottle size and vintage
The Jean Leon Nativa range, made with native Catalan varieties, is a tribute to Penedès, a place chosen by Jean Leon to fulfill the dream of making a wine that bears his name. The Catalan tile, a valuable testimonial piece of our history and popular life, inspires this collection. The Rosa de los Vientos illustrates this ecological, fresh and elegant xarel·lo, made 100% with the quintessential Penedès variety. 12 days of alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature of 15oC.
