Product Description

Produced by Masia Can Mayol, the wine Ops de Loxarel is made from a blend of certified organic Grenache and Grenache Peluda vines. Though frequent in other regions of Catalonia, the combination of those two varieties is rather uncommon in Penedès.

After a meticulous harvest, the two varieties of this Spanish red wine were separately vinified.

Once alcoholic fermentation was completed, this organic and biodynamic red wine was aged for 5 months in 720-litre clay vessels, in order not to distort the wine with wooden flavours and aromas.

Belonging to the DO Catalunya, the red wine Ops de Loxarel 2021 is a radical, nicelly irreverent wine.

Pair this young red wine with healthy meat recipes.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The organic red wine Ops de Loxarel is violet-ruby with a bluish rim.


Despite its youthful colour, the first impression we get from this blend of Grenache and Grenache Peluda is a note of leafy vegetables, slowly evolving into aromas of blackberries, strawberries and remembrances of red flowers.


Fresh and yummy, this Loxarel wine has a great acidity and a slightly wild, rugged character that is quite attractive. Fruit-driven, this wine of Masia Can Mayol has an excellent acidity and a medium, uplifting finish.

Our personal opinion

After so many overpolished wines, Ops de Loxarel 2021 wine is a welcomed surprise.

Sort of raw and slightly grainy, but the wine compensates it with honesty and amazing vitality. Almost a juice fruit. I love it.
