Grape - Muscat/Xarel-lo
Where - Penedes, Catalonia, Spain
What - Loxarel are a winery located in Penedes; a small appellation in the heart of Catalonia. At the heart of everything they do, Loxarel are keen to produce wines of exceptional quality that showcase the varieties of Catalonia in a way that minimizes the impact on the environment. Our love for this wine runs ridiculously deep.
The Cora is a cleverly crafted blend of Muscat and Xarel-lo. The grapes are hand-harvested and vinified in steel using wild yeasts. The wine is then aged on its yeasts and then further aged in steel tanks before cold settling and bottling with minimal sulphite.
This is a big, punchy vegan white wine, with huge notes of honeysuckle, white flowers, tropical fruit and nectarine. It's pretty much as big as a white wine can get, but is still so, so, so soft and elegant. It will stand up well with any coconut curry or spicy ramen dish. It is difficult to convey just how much you need this wine in your life.
Punchy, powerful, aromatic. Vegan. Organic. Low intervention. 12.5% ABV.
