Winemaking

Cava made from organic grapes bottled in a singular bottle to emphasize the differential factor and identify its origin, represented

by an international blend that gives it structure, aroma and stronger flavors. During the harvest, which is carried out manually, the

best grapes for the making of cava are selected. The free-run juice is extracted through very light pressure to avoid the transfer of

the color 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 36 months and is released on the

market just after being disgorged.

 

Vintage 2018

An extremely rainy Spring increased the vines’ unique vigor leading to slightly higher yields compared with recent years. Our mildew

free vineyards combined with high temperatures and minimal rain in July bumped up the harvest and produced exceptional healthy

grapes for wine-based cava. The maturing process slowed down and was irregular after mid-August due to heavy rains, mild

temperatures and less sunshine, so the sorting and selection process took place both in the vineyard and in the cellar. However,

thanks to the decrease in rainfall and increased sunshine in mid-September, the grapes matured correctly. As a result of the

weather described above, 2018 produced fabulous aromatic white wines with less alcoholic volume and less structured impressive

fresh red wines. All in all, an accentuated Atlantic vintage rather than Mediterranean.

 

Wine Tasting Notes

Sight - Pale yellow with golden reflections.

Nose - White fruit aromas with a floral aftertaste, notes of

red fruit and almond.

Palate - Unctuous, dry and slightly fruity. Fine bubbles with

an elegant palate. Well-structured Cava without losing

freshness. Tasty and with a lingering aftertaste.
