Tasting Note: Pale yellow with golden reflections. White fruit aromas with a floral aftertaste, notes of red fruit and almond. Unctuous, dry and slightly fruity. Fine bubbles with an elegant palate. Well-structured Cava that retains freshness through its lengthy aftertaste. Bottled with zero grams residual sugar (Brut Nature).
Winemaking Notes: Cava made from organic grapes in a singular bottle to emphasise the differential feature represented by an international blend, giving it structure, aroma and stronger flavours. During the harvest, which is carried out manually, the best grapes for the making of cava are selected . The extraction of the first pressing must is conducted through very light pressure , to avoid the transfer of the colour from the Pinot Noir grape. The fermentation is carried out in a controlled temperature of 15oC, each variety in separate vats. Made through the traditional method, this cava has been aged on its lees for a minimum of 30 months and is released on the market just after being disgorged.
Variety: Pansa Blanca (Xarel.lo), Macabeu, Parellada, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
Region: D.O. Alella, Barcelona, Spain
