When I was in Penedès last week I visited the producer Llopart, that makes wonderful cava, but they also make something else...
...a 100% xarel-lo grape must, that is ecological!
Xarel-lo is the backbone of cava, giving structure, alcohol and aging potential. It is actually so that Xarel-lo is the one commercial grape that contains the highest levels of antioxidants, which makes it especially suited for aging.
This makes me think about all the commercials and stuff that reaches me through social media (going on fourtie as I am...) that tries to sell me anti-aging products full of antioxidants. Maybe the source of eternal youth is drinking pure ecological xarel-lo must?!
I will be much happier spending my money on this amazing drink, than expensive face cremes, that's for sure!
Luckily it's avalible in Sweden too!
If you want to taste what xarel-lo taste like before it turns into cava, this is a great opportunity, or if you want an extra nice drink to your Sunday brunch or to try if this might very well be the source of eternal youth and beauty... ...you won't at least be disappointed in the taste because it is delicious! It is also good if you want to start training your kids in recognizing the indigenous grapes of Penedès! ;-)
