Straw yellow, with flashes of gold. A Cava with a very fine mousse, appreciably enhancing the wine’s brightness of tone, and rising to form a light string of beads at the surface in the glass. Good intense and complex aromas. There are notes of ripe apple fruit and bright citrus over an elegant backdrop of dried fruits and baked bread coming from its appropriate lees ageing. On the palate it is flavoursome, refreshing and balanced, with good fruit delivery; it has a creamy texture and has the fine finish with the complex flavours of a fine, well aged Cava.
Minimum 30 months aging on lees. 85% Macabeo, 15% Chardonnay.
"This is an intense, rich Cava on the palate, perfectly balancing elegant fruit with the fullness of long bottle ageing. These characteristics make it the ideal partner for Iberian Acorn fed Ham, the richness of which needs a match which has both body and freshness. White meats in a light sauce would also be a perfect match. We would also heartily recommend a “sea and mountain” combination, such as lobster and free range chicken, and it is ideal with Japanese cuisine where the Soya elements beautifully balance the finesse of raw fish. Grilled red tuna would also be a balanced
companion. For cheese matches, stretch curd, or smoked goat and sheep’s milk cheeses are ideal, as is matured cheese such as Emmental where the creamy and fruity notes would match Brut Vintage to perfection."
