Availability: In stock (3)

A bright, refreshing still dry white from the grape the is use to give Cava acidity. Xarel-lo is a native variety of Catalonia, often a key component of both still and bubbly blended wines, yet here presented in its unrestricted glory. Organically grown grapes from a centuries old winery, exceptional quality at a unbelievable price point.

From the mouth of the importer (Polaner):

"Fermí Bohigas is a family-owned winery that has roots dating back to the 13th century. The estate is located in the town of Òdena in the River Anoia valley, about 45 minutes west of Barcelona. The current family and their ancestors have been growing grapes and making wines at this location consecutively since 1290. Their first bottling took place in 1870. They first used the name “Bohigas” on a wine label in 1978. Today, the family’s estate encompasses 300 hectares of which 110 are split between two separate vineyard properties, named “Can Maciá” and “Can Batllevell”, both of which have their own cellars."
