Xarello

(aka. Pansa Blanca)

Also known as Pansa Blanca, Xarello is used only in Catalonia, Spain, where it is used in the production of Cava sparkling wines. The variety produces a typically acidic wine that is perfect for use as a base for these traditional method sparkling wines. The variety is also the best grape used in the small, but highly-regarded D.O. of Alella, where the Parxet winery makes its acclaimed Marques de Alella Classico from Xarello.

In your Catalan homeland, you exist peacefully as simple Pansà Blanca, living a safe and benign life. But in the company of two other sparkling Caballeros, señores Macabeo and Parellada, you have ventured out into the world, and leave your mark via your more adventurous alter ego, Xarel-lo!

Of course, the world of seafood is  as varied as this list, and it just as easily could have been a list of 100 ... but one must start somewhere!Here goes:1. Domaine Sainte Lannes Cot... Read More

  • Nadal Xarel-Lo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Made from one of the components that make up cava, it is no surprise how this one came across. Very fresh without overpowering in any way. A very easy drink, lots of apple on the mid palate. Read More

  • Raimat Clamor Blanco 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A nice white wine that showed decent body. Very apple-y on the nose and on the palate - like a very juicy Granny Smith without the acid. Well rounded and accompanied grilled salmon very well. Read More

Although generally a big fan of Rioja I must admit i'm  being slowly seduced by these Fresh, crisp and refreshing Spanish beauties Verdejo, Albarino, Viura and even Fino, Manzanilla Sherry, which I'm drinking more of now thanks to dmcker encouraging me....
