A wine that easily disproves the notion that Cava can only be cheaply produced, everyday fizz. This is mature, complex Cava produced with a patience that we have not seen elsewhere! The wine is described as a Gran Reserva and this relates to the five years that the wine has sat in the cellar maturing on its lees in the bottle before being disgorged by hand. This kind of unrushed approach produces something that you could draw a parallel to Champagne or a decent Cremant with. The bubbles are delicate and impossibly tiny - something that can only be achieved with time, and the nose has that delicious bready aroma of brioche from the lees contact as well as ripe peach and zesty lemons. Didn’t think Cava could be serious? Think again! Next time you reach for a celebratory bottle, consider this this little gem - you wont be disappointed.
