Xarel.lo is the predominant grape variety of Penedes, the winemaking region just south of Barcelona where much of Spain's Cava production takes place. It's a mineral-like grape variety, with spicy notes of aniseed and fennel, along with a touch of orange peel and citrus.
Naturally made with minimal amounts of sulphur added, this is an exciting, complex and thought provoking wine.
Celler Credo is a project of Recaredo, well known as one of the best producers of sparkling wine in Penedes. We can't praise this bodega highly enough their attention to detail in every aspect of their wines is phenomenal.
We were lucky enough to try Celler Credo at the domaine in 2013 and are delighted to see them finally imported into the UK.
