Xarel-lo Amphora, Loxarel
For those who like Sauvignon Blanc but want to try something a lot more exciting!
Can Mayol is a Family-owned estate, and use indigenous grape varieties in the hills of Penedes just outside Barcelona.
Can Mayol, which bottles under the trademarked name “Loxarel,” is a winery that has been farming organically for more than a decade. Owned by the Mitjan family, the winery is relatively primitive in design, due to their desire to concentrate all their time and energy simply on winemaking, not on fancy gadgets or architecture.
The key focus at Can Mayol is Cava production, yet they also produce a range of high quality, single varietal wines that all display a distinctive elegance and minerality.
The Xarel.lo is an example of the Mitjan’s commitment to experimentation, fermented and aged in ancient amphorae vessels before being bottled for release. An intriguing expression of this indigenous Catalan grape variety.
