Product Description
Details

We are proud to present a truly original wine. Loxarel Brut Nature Garnatxa Blanca is 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 Penedès called El Pla de Manlleu. The vines are grown following organic farming procedures. This Spanish sparkling wine belongs to the DO Clàssic Penedès.

Crafted by Masia Can Mayol, the first winery to produce a sparkling wine made from White Grenache in Penedès, Loxarel Brut Nature Garnatxa Blanca 2018 was vinified following traditional methods and aged for 15 months prior to its commercial release.

The production of this Clàssic Penedès totalized just 5,700 bottles.

Appearance

The sparkling wine Loxarel Brut Nature Garnatxa Blanca has a pale, translucent, straw yellow colour with greenish tinges.

Nose

This varietal Garnatxa Blanca shows a very original aromatic profile. 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 traditional Cavas, which tend to be on the dry side, this sparkler of Masia Can Mayol has a smooth, velvety body, a great acidity and well-integrated bubbles. On the palate, it suggests notes of freshly-baked cakes and ripe white fruit. This Clàssic Penedès is linear and tense, with a long, fruity finish.  

Our personal opinion

Truly original, Loxarel Brut Nature Garnatxa Blanca 2018 proves that White Grenache can also produce interesting sparkling wines.
