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 3 months in 720-litre clay vessels, in order not to distort the wine with wooden flavours and aromas.
Belonging to the DO Catalunya, Ops de Loxarel 2018 is a radical, nicelly irreverent wine.
The Spanish red wine Ops de Loxarel has a violet-ruby colour with a bluish rim.
Despite its youthful colour, the first impression we get from this blend of Grenache and Carignan is a note of leafy vegetables, slowly evolving into aromas of blackberries, strawberries and remebrances of flowers.
Fresh and yummy, this red wine from Loxarel has a great acidity and a slightly wild, rugged character that is quite attractive. Fruit-driven, this wine from Masia Can Mayol has an excellent acidity and a medium, uplifting finish.
