Move over Prosecco! Cava is the King of Sparkling wines! Crystal-clear, greenish colour with golden highlights. Fine and constant bubbles forming a great rosary on the top of the glass. Wild meadow flowers fusing into pleasant fruit aromas and subtle ageing undertones. A fresh with good acidity is balanced with very subtle floral undertones and flavours of creamy pastries. Nice carbonic finish, lingering on the palate. 

Food Matching: Its delicate and elegant character pairs well with light dishes, and is ideal for lightly seasoned cooking. It is especially recommended for all kinds of fish and shellfish. It is a perfect accompaniment for poultry and also for cocktails and as an aperitif.

Viticulture & 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 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.
Oak Ageing: No oak but aged for 12-15 months on lees.
