About this WINE
Finca Nadal del a Boadella
Xarello, also knowm as Xarel-lo, is a white wine grape that forms the backbone of the Cava Spanish sparkling wine, being one of the three traditional grapes used in its production.
The other two grapes are the Catalan indigenous variety Parellada, and Macabeo which is better known as Viura, the main white grape of Rioja.
Xarel-lo contributes intense aromas in the blend which many believe underpins Cava's unique character. A handful of producers has experimented with making small quantity of still wines from Xarel-lo which are generally being met with good reviews.
Xarello is also known as Cartuja, Cartuxa, Moll, Pansa, Pansa Blanca, Pansal and Xarelo Blanco.

Xarel-lo is more often found in Spanish Cava. This non-sparkling example is part of the exciting wave of new wines to emerge from Spain as it rediscovers its heritage of native grape varieties. The wine displays fine, but nevertheless powerful, aromatics of citrus mingled with ripe apple and a touch of high-toned lemon sherbet, whilst on the palate there is a pleasing weight and ripe fruit finished with a clean acidity.
