A crisp white from just outside of Barcelona, with lots of texture and body that makes this a brilliant food wine.
Grenache Blanc and Xarel-lo grapes are blended to give a full and dry wine. ‘Amaltea’ is the tender, nurturing goddess, of the Greeks and foster mother to Zeus – though this is sometimes, as with the label, represented as a goat who suckled the infant-god in a cave.
Loxarel is the brand name of the 4th generation family owned estate which, under the vision of Josep Mitjans, converted to organic production in 2002 then biodynamic in 2005.
Highlighting their concern for the environment, labels take their names from Goddesses of earth and fertility in Greek and Roman mythology. The Loxarel range mixes modern experimentation with tradition; organic and bio-dynamic certified, all the wines are bottled unfiltered.
