Xarel-lo's not just for Cava, folks - in the capable hands of Vins el Cep, the pioneering producer of biodynamic and organic wines in Penedès, it's absolute crusher worthy of a slot in your weekly (or daily?) rotation. Following the lead of Maite Esteve (matriarch, grape grower, winemaker, CFO, mythic being), the winery is committed to fresh expressions of estate-only fruit. And while their elegant, textured Cava is certainly worth a look, we're currently crushing on their 'OT' Xarel-lo, a lively and buoyant bottling of young vines dotted around the estate. Packed with a mix of fresh citrus zest, lime leaf, and heaps of balanced tropical fruit, you'll surely go back for a second, third, and fourth glass.
