Cora de Loxarel Muscat/Xarel-lo
A carefully crafted blend of floral Muscat and crisp Xarel-lo (a main grape varietal for Cava). Cora is the Greek goddess of springtime, flowers and vegetation, the daughter of Zeus and the harvest goddess Demeter.
Loxarel is the brand name of the 4th generation family owned estate which, under the vision of Josep Mitjans, converted to organic production in 2002 then biodynamic in 2005.
Highlighting their concern for the environment, labels take their names from Goddesses of earth and fertility in Greek and Roman mythology. The Loxarel range mixes modern experimentation with tradition; organic and bio-dynamic certified, all the wines are bottled unfiltered.
Light honeysuckle and floral aromas from the Muscat grape; the palate is dry with a balancing citrus crispness from the Xarel-lo.
About the Producer
Masia Can Mayol
Loxarel (Xarel-lo, their principal grape varietal re-arranged) is the brand name of the 4th generation family owned estate which, under the vision of Josep Mitjans, converted to organic production in 2002 then biodynamic in 2005.
The 50ha of vineyards, located high in the mountains (and including the highest is DO Penedes) are structured around environmentally friendly production not simply organic cultivation. For example, Loxarel carry out green pruning with a flock of 250 sheep and goats which eat the vine leaves without touching the fruit as, before they mature, the grapes are too astringent and unpalatable.
