Characteristics of A Pèl Blanc
A Pèl Xarel·lo is a natural white wine made by Bodega Loxarel in the D.O. Penedès. It's a Xarel·lo single-varietal, and the grapes come from the winery's vineyards planted in Finca Can Mayol at at altitude of 250 metres above sea level. Bodega Loxarel grow their vines according to the principles of organic and biodynamic farming. "A pel" in Catalan means "uncovered". Natural, unprotected, uncovered. In the case of A Pèl Xarel·lo, no product is added. It ferments with wild yeasts, and no sulphites are added. It is not subject to any process, filtration of stabilisation.
Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
Bodega Loxarel is a winery situated in the small town of Vilobí del Penedés, in the Penedés, who use organic and biodynamic farming to produce excellent cavas and wines that reflect the character of the terroir.
