Xarel-Lo

Charmingly coarse and unspoilt

This vine is almost indispensable for the production of Cava, the Spanish answer to champagne.

Xarel-Lo is cultivated on roughly 1,000 hectares. The vine has a rustic character, yet produces elegant wines. Since the 1990s, however, Xarel-Lo has been increasingly pressed as a varietal wine. These wines are characterized by their golden-yellow color and their richness.

It is speculated that Xarel-Lo is identical to Avesso, a variety from the Vinho wine growing area in northern Portugal. This is also true of the Doradillo variety, which is, however, no longer cultivated under this name.
