Loxarel Ops Samso Garnacha 2015, Penedes, Spain

Deep red in colour with purple hints, the wine has aromas of black and red fruits such as blackberry and raspberries, wild rose and herbaceous wild plants.

The palate is fresh, balanced and full-bodied with lovely fruit notes. Ideal for pairing with barbecues and spiced meats.

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. The winery is basic; they don’t waste energy or money on modern technology or fancy architecture. While the focus is on Cava production, they also produce some very interesting still wines from their chalky, high altitude vineyards above 2,400 feet for their highest vines, among the highest in the Penedès D.O picking up an incredible minerality, which makes these wines wonderfully distinctive and very exciting to drink.
