Can Sala Cava Gran Reserva Brut Nature 2008
Sparkling Wine of the Year 2020 - The Drinks Business
A complex, long aged Cava de Paraje Calificado, the top designation for Cava. Intense yellow in colour, reflecting its years in bottle. The mousse is elegant and long lasting, showing excellent crown. On the nose it is clean, with aromas of dried fruits and toasty elements, balanced by ripe fruit compôtes, honey and ripe fruits, predominantly peach. Notes of vanilla. There are significant aromas of freshly baked bread and pastries. Full on the palate, with a perfectly integrated mousse. This is a fine, long full bodied Cava which is extremely pleasant to drink.
The Can Sala Winery was built in the grounds of the Ferrer family estate by Joan Sala in 1901, and is where wines for export were made until in 1914, and where Pere Ferrer Bosch and Dolores Sala Vivé created the first bottle of Freixenet cava. Nowadays, the Can Sala Winery is equipped with the latest technology. In the new biodynamic winery they have tried to retain the best from each generation. Making their cava how it was originally done, but incorporating the latest winemaking technologies.
