Characteristics of Loxarel Cora
Loxarel Cora is a very aromatic white wine produced by Bodega Loxarel in Penedés, a winery that was founded by the family on a farm called Mitjans Can Mayol. Currently, the winery is under the management of the fifth generation of the family. This winery has 50 hectares of land devoted to the production of wines and champagnes.
The climate in this area of the Penedès is Mediterranean, i.e. soft and warm. The average annual temperature is 15 ° C and rainfall is recorded throughout the year. This wine is a blend of Muscat and Xarel·lo grapes from vineyards situated at an altitude of 500-700 metres above sea level. The vines are cultivated according to ecological and biodynamic agriculture. As for developing, maceration is carried out for 6 hours with the skins and dry ice, to preserve its primary flavours and avoid damaging oxidation. Subsequently fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16 ° for several weeks. The meaning of "Cora" is a young and virgin maiden, as found in Greek mythology. A perfect name for this delicate and elegant white wine.

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.
