Grape Variety: 45% Macabeo, 40% Xarel.lo, 10% Chardonnay, 5% Parellada
Tasting Notes: Move over Prosecco! Cava is the King of Sparkling wines! Straw-yellow colour with greenish undertones. Fine and constant bubbles forming a delicate crown. Pleasant touch of honey, almonds and dried herbs wrapped in biscuit, toasty aromas. Traces of wild flowers together with subtle fruity notes. Creamy fruit pastry hints in the mouth. It is fresh, with good acidity, and balanced with nutty and toasty flavours. Nice carbonic finish; elegant and lingering on the palate. Its delicate and elegant character goes well with light dishes, and is ideal for lightly seasoned cooking. It is especially recommended for all kinds of fish and shellfish and is a perfect accompaniment for poultry and also for cocktails or as an aperitif.

WinemakingAfter a careful selection of the grapes from their vineyards, the first fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a very low temperature between 12-14°C in order to assist the creation of secondary aromas. The wine obtained undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle according to the méthode traditionnelle. The cava ages in the silence of their cellar on its lees for 12 - 15 months.
