Clàssic Penedès Loxarel Brut Nature Garnatxa Blanca 2018
Availability: In stock
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.
Pale, translucent, straw yellow colour with greenish tinges.
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.
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.
