Neotraditional cava house in the Penedés, with documented generational family history dating back to 1530. Of note for this Catalan winery, the property is also home to a neolithic cave, dating back to the year 3000 BC, where archaeologists recently found the remains of vessels containing beer, possibly the oldest in all of Europe. As a result of this new discovery, the Sadurní family is planning a new project focusing on the production of craft beer.
This traditional cava is composed of a blend of 40% Xarel·lo, 30% Macabeu and 30% Parellada. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with second fermentation in bottle, aging for a minimum of 30 months. Residual sugar is minimal, clocking in at 2 g/L and the alcohol is fairly light at 11.5%.
Lovely aromatics of tart lemon, delicate yellow and green apples, hints of Bosc pear and a touch of nuttiness. The bubbles are creamy and persistent on the palate with a lively acidity and a replay of the aromatics. Youthful and fruity cava with a moderate amount of complexity and a highly refreshing quality.
Serve chilled and enjoy on its own or with light dishes like patés, salmon rillette, salted cod dip with chips, sheep's milk cheese like Manchego, green salads or fried apps.
