Characteristics of Loxarel Amaltea Blanc
Loxarel Amaltea Blanc is produced in the D.O Penedès by Loxarel. This is a blend of Garnacha Blanca and Xarelo.
The grapes used for Loxarel Amaltea Blanc originate from the winery's own vineyards, which are located up at an altitude of 600 meters, in the case of the varietal Garnacha Blanca, the grapes grow up at 250 meters. Xarelo grows on the estate Finca Can Mayol.
The agricultural methods are those that are associated with eco-friendly and biodynamic farming.
Loxarel Amaltea Blanc is a young wine, this means that the wine is not aged before being sold.
The name Amaltea refers to the Greek nymph Amalthea, Zeus´s step mother, often represented as a goat that suckled the young God. The goat, furthermore, is the symbol for biodynamic agriculture.

For many Catalan winemakers, the DO Catalunya is one of their best weapons for marketing their wines to the international market, since the image of their wine is significantly enhanced by a ‘Denominación de Origen’, which can certify a wines origin and quality. One of the initial positive effects is the fact that great wines are associated with a larger geographic area within the peninsula, in the same way as the Bordeaux region in France. For many producers, the DO Catalunya is a clear sign of the regions commitment towards a model of quality. This is especially beneficial for Catalan wines that previously did not come under another ‘Denominación de Origen’.
