APPELATION: DO Cava
VARIETALS: Xarel·lo 50%, Macabeo 25%, Parellada 15%, Chardonnay 10%.
WINEMAKER: Maria Casanovas
ABOUT THE WINE: Estate owned vineyards located about 45 miles west of Barcelona in the River Anoia valley. The family owns a total of 150 hectares planted mostly to traditional varieties. This area is particularly suitable for the production of base cava wines of great quality, because the vines have naturally low yields and the grapes are high in acidity. The cava is based on the indigenous grapes Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada.
TASTING NOTES: Straw yellow in color with golden hues. Aromas of apple and pear coming from the Macabeo and Parellada varieties together with some bakery notes. Small and very persistant bubbles.
