Details

Cora Blanco Loxarel, Penedes, aromatic, intense, organic white wine. This excellent, and reasonably priced white from Loxarel is made from Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc and Xarel Lo (see what they did there...). It has exotic aromas such as lychee, an something vaguely reminiscent of a Pina Colada, while on the palate it is dry, refreshing, with great minerality which makes it much more interesting than your average bottle at this price. Cora comes from the Greek word meaning young virgin maiden.

Can Mayol, which bottles under the trademarked name “Loxarel,” is a winery that has been farming organically for more than a
decade. The Mitjan family, owners of Can Mayol, also employ some biodynamic treatments. Half of the vines are situated around
the cellars and main house, which dates from the 14th century, not far from Vilafranca. The other half lie about half an hour away
up an incredibly steep track at 800 metres in what feels like another world, half way to heaven! The winery is basic and all the
better for it – they don’t waste energy or money on modern technology or fancy architecture. Intriguingly, however, there are a
few amphorae in the small barrel cellar, part of the Mitjan’s commitment to experimenting and producing a range of natural
wines. They keep animals, including chickens, a horse and a donkey named Garnatxa
