Celler Pardas Xarel.lo '14

Every producer has a flagship wine. It is not always their most expensive wine, its not always their most age worthy, but it often times means the most to them as a producer.

If there is one wine to try from Celler Pardas, a small producer in the Penedès region of Catalunya, it is their Xarel.lo. Winemaker Ramon Parera and super farmer Jordi Arnan, have a fundamental belief that the indigenous grapes of Penedès, Xarel.lo and Sumoll are the most complex varietals that the region grows. 

Xarel.lo in particular is at the heart of everything that happens at Celler Pardas. They make three different white wines based on the grape, which is often most associated with its usage in Cava, the sparkling wine of the region.

I often compare Pardas Xarel.lo to White Burgundy, as the texture, mineral and fruit can lend itself to the comparison. Yet it is still so distinctly Catalan, a wine of the Mediterranean, with stone fruit and citrus notes intertwined with mineral and fennel notes.

This is a white wine that can stand up to braised meat dishes, including a chicken fricassee or pork stew.

Celler Pardas is located in the Alt Penedès region of Catalunya, an area well known for being the heart of Cava country (Spain's sparkling wine). They have chosen, however, not to make sparkling wine, rather they focus on still wines produced from local varieties.
