“X” grape entries


One of the three grapes (along with Macabeo and Parellada) that are used in the production of the sparkling Spanish wine Cava. Xarel-lo is found mainly in the northeastern region of Catalonia. Though prone to frost damage, Xarel-lo is a very productive and usually retains medium to high levels of acidity. In the Alella region of Catalonia, Xarel-lo (here known as Pansa Blanca) is used to produce still wines that are crisp and fresh, with notes of stone fruits, cream and a sometimes vegetal quality.
