Created in 2012 as the perfect partner for Brut Reserva Heredad, we waited since then for the best harvest and aging to confirm the desired result. Made 100% with Pinot Noir grapes from 2011 vintage, it is very pale in color, delicate, elegant and with a crispy acidity which may predict it will age really well.
The grapes come from one limited vineyard, located at a high altitude (Aiguaviva) at more than 500 meters above the sea level. Harvest was done by machine and at night to have a fresh and a fast picking, and once the grape arrived at the winery we did not press it, we only used the free run juice to create the final blend.
Aged in bottle with home selected yeasts for more than 15 months, the “remuage” has been done by hand.
Pinot Noir, specifically selected and created to make Cava is refreshing, a high fruit profile, but perfectly balanced in body, alcohol married with fruit, ripe red fruit, grenadine with bright redcurrants, over a backdrop of freshly picked flowers. On the palate it is full of personality, its acidity a beacon, lively and natural, but also creating body and intensity, in perfect harmony with those ripe red fruits.
Great to be partnered with many dishes, such as: classic risottos, black and white truffles (in season), firm textured fish – monk fish, lobster crayfish and cod. It would also be perfect the classic scrambled eggs with homemade fries and mountain ham, or more simply salmon en papillote.
