Xarel-lo

Xarel-lo is a light-skinned grape from Catalonia, northeastern Spain, and is one of the region's most widely planted varieties. It is used to make various wine styles, but it is best known for its role in sparkling Cava, in which it is typically blended with two other classic Spanish grapes varieties, Macabeo and Parellada.

Macabeo – Parellada – Xarel-lo blends are used mostly in Catalonia, northeastern Spain, notably in Penedes and Priorat. Its most famous function is in the white sparkling Cava wines, which are found around the world.

Synonyms include: Pansa Blanca, Xarello.
