Product Description
Details

As usual, the new vintage of Refugi Brut Nature Reserva de Loxarel is made from certified organic vineyards.

Produced by Masia Can Mayol under the Clàssic Penedès label, this organic sparkling wine is virtually a single varietal Xarel·lo coming from old, over 70-year-old vines planted in the Garraf mountain range, a beautiful environment located south of Barcelona. The Xarel·lo is complemented with 8% Chardonnay.

As for the winemaking process, half of the Xarel·lo base wine was fermented in French oak barrels, and the rest in stainless steel tanks.

Then Refugi Brut Nature Reserva de Loxarel 2015 was bottled, completed secondary fermentation, and was aged for about 32 months in the cellar.

No shipping liquor was added to this Clàssic Penedès sparkler after its disgorgement.

Appearance

The sparkling wine Refugi Brut Nature Reserva de Loxarel has a clean, bright, pale yellow colour with some steely tinges.

Nose

This organic sparkler from Loxarel is quite enticing. Notes of fresh pastry, lees, English custard, fruit - yellow apples, peaches, ripe apricots - with hints of white flowers and some mineral suggestions.

Palate

Unctuous and velvety, with a substantial body and a rewarding sensation of freshness, enhanced by a tense acidity, typical of Xarel·lo. There are notes of toast and pastry, Chardonnay's trademark, alongside some fine lees and fruit compote, nicely intertwined with some tiny, caressing bubbles. Long, pleasantly bitter finish.

Our personal opinion

Crisp and nicely balanced, Refugi Brut Nature Reserva Loxarel 2015 is a delicious organic sparkler which will perfectly accompany a whole meal, from aperitif to dessert.

Another fabulously priced sparkling wine from Catalonia. Chard brings smoothness and Xar provides the flesh. A very pleasurable bubbly indeed. Review by Davide Mora (Posted on 03/04/2019)
