Bodegas Masia Can Mayol based in Penedes make an extensive range of Cavas under the Loxarel and Saniger labels. Loxarel's 50 ha of vineyards, located high in the mountains, are structured around environmentally friendly production. The Xarel-lo grapes used in their Cavas come from 70 year old vineyards. The bottles are aged in caves that were used as shelters by the civilian population during the Spanish Civil War.
Bodegas Masia Can Mayol:
Saniger, Vintage Reserva, Gran Reserva and Reserva Familiar are all blends of Xarel-lo, Macabeu and Chardonnay with different periods of ageing.
Saniger has 28 months - giving a full rich and rounded style and will soon appear with a new modern label.
Vintage Reserva is aged the same but without any dosage and made with just a little Chardonnay. It has more crispness and less weight, which is the traditional Cava style.
Gran Reserva blended with more of the preferred Xarel-lo varietal is aged for at least 36 months resulting in a soft appley nose, very creamy mouth-feel with a long finish.
Reserva Familiar is aged for 42 to 48 months. The Cava is only disgorged when ordered, thus reaching the customer in peak condition. The taste is light and complex with almond pastry notes, finishing clean and elegant.
MM is a Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Xarel-lo blend aged for at least 42 months. The superb presentation reinforces the quality of the Cava. It is very aromatic with delicate floral and nutty notes, exceptional good balance on the palate and a dry, lingering finish.
'999' Rosat is made from predominantly Pinot Noir with some of the native grape Trepat (used solely in rosé Cavas). Bottle ageing is moderate, about 14 months, in order to emphasise the aromas, fruit and freshness of the wine. It has a fairly full colour and taste where raspberry and other red fruits dominate.
