Product Description
Details

We are proud to present a truly original wine. Loxarel Brut Nature Garnatxa Blanca 2012 is the second vintage of a varietal sparkling wine entirely crafted from White Grenache, a variety indigenous to Catalonia that produces bold whites with a great structure.

The grapes come from several plots located at an altitude of 700 metres above sea level in a sub-zone of the Penedés called El Pla de Manlleu. The vines are grown following organic farming procedures. This sparkling wine belongs to the new denomination Clàssic Penedès.

This wine is a worthy effort to expand the frame of the Catalan Cavas and, at the same time, an exploration into the possibilities of the Catalan indigenous grapes in order to produce terroir-oriented, radical sparkling wines This sparkling wine belongs to the category.

Crafted by Masía Can Mayol, the first winery to produce a sparkling wine made from White Grenache, Loxarel Brut Nature Garnacha Blanca was vinified following traditional methods and aged for 15 months prior to its commercial release.

This is a limited edition wine. Production: 5,700 bottles.

Appearance

Pale, translucent, straw yellow colour with greenish tinges.

Nose

Loxarel Brut Nature Garnatxa Blanca shows a very original aromatic profile for a sparkling wine, with notes of pears, apples, citrus, some pastry remembrances, hints of milk bread, subtle touches of dry fruit and a dash of dry earth.

Palate

Creamier than the traditional Cavas, which tend to be on the dry side, this White Grenache has a smooth, velvety body, a great acidity and well-integrated bubbles. On the palate, it evokes sensations of freshly-baked cakes and ripe white fruit. Linear and tense, with a long, fruity finish.  

Our personal opinion

Loxarel Brut Nature Garnatxa Blanca 2012 is different from everything you may have tasted. This is the proof that White Grenache can also produce interesting sparkling wines.
