Characteristics of Loxarel Amaltea

Loxarel Amaltea is a red wine from the Penedès produced by the Loxarel winery. It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The grapes come from vineyards planted on the Can Mayol estate in Vilobí del Penedès. They are located at about 300 metres of altitude. The winery uses biological and biodynamic agriculture. Every four years manure is used as a fertilizer.

The harvest is done manually. The grapes are destemmed and macerated in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 10 ° C.

Loxarel Amaltea is fermented for 15 days at a temperature of between 20º and 25º. Each variety undergoes this process separately.

Finally, Loxarel Amaltea is aged for 10 months in Hungarian oak barrels. Only when aging has completed, the final blend is made.

The Can Mayol estate is where the Mitjans family has been working for five generations. The land on which the vines grow today was used as an aerodrome during the Spanish Civil War.

Bodega Loxarel plays with the name of one of the most typical varieties of the area, the Xarelo. Its work is to use the fruits of this rich land, both historically and for making wine.

Designation of Origin D.O. Penedès

Winery Loxarel

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.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Penedès

Loxarel is based on the personality and character of its creator, Josep Mitjans, and on its organic, natural, biodynamic wines. The connection with the land, and the relationship with the terroir with everything surrounding it, with the universe, characterises wines that reflect the landscape and take the palate to the most authentic Penedès: sparkling wines with personality and character, and natural wines with essence, that reconnect with the land and the spark of life it carries.
