2018 Can Mayol Loxarel "A pel" Ancestral Classic Penedes

SKU #1432479

Petillant naturel, aka "pet nat" is here to stay, and this is our favorite Spanish rendition of this popular sparkling wine style. The "Apel" is a Xarel-lo based methode ancestrale, allowed to naturally ferment prior to being bottled and then fermented fully dry, possessing just the right amount of sugar while in bottle to convert into trapped CO2. The resulting wine is dry, expressive, elegantly textured and more-ish as can be! Can Mayol, which bottles under the trademarked name "Loxarel," is a winery that has farmed organically for 15 years. The Mitjan family, owners of Can Mayol, also employ some biodynamic treatments. They keep animals, including chickens, a horse, and a donkey named Garnatxa. While the focus is on "Brut Nature" (no dosage added) sparkling wine production, they also produce some very interesting still wines. In their chalky, high-altitude vineyards (above 2,400 feet for their highest vines, among the highest in the Penedès D.O.), Xarel-lo, Macabeo, Parellada, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir thrive and pick up an incredible minerality, which makes these wines wonderfully distinctive and very exciting to drink.
