About: We see Xarel.lo as a cross between the coquettish and cute Drew Barrymore and the spicy sultry side of Charlize Theron. She’s the grape that gives Cava its gorgeous structure and acidity, when paired with Parellada and Macabeo, while offering just enough citrus and stone fruit flavors to entice you in for a second sip. She’s extraordinarily vivacious, capable of producing grapes at a rapid pace, but gets hurt rather quickly when frost bites upon her thin-skinned exterior. What can I say, she’s the studious girl next store with a sweet smile, serious features and soft heart; and beyond a doubt, she’s one of my favorites.
