Details

Produced by Masia Can Mayol, Ops de Loxarel is made from a blend of certified organic Grenache and Carignan vines.

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 CatalunyaOps de Loxarel 2018 is a radical, nicelly irreverent wine.

Additional Information

Appearance

The Spanish red wine Ops de Loxarel has a violet-ruby colour with a bluish rim.

Nose

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.

Palate

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.

Our personal opinion

After so many overpolished wines, Ops de Loxarel 2018 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.
