Cava Brut Nature Gran Reserva  

Cava Brut Nature Gran Reserva

Seduction of aging

Classic Sumarroca, from our own vineyards, the traditional mix of Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada and aged for a minimum of 36 months in stacks.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINEYARD

The Sumarroca estate is known for its poor, calcareous and chalky gravel field presence. The influence of the sea is reduced by the effect of the Garraf mountain range, which dries the sea breeze, while the pre-coastal range reduces excess dry wind from the interior. These conditions result in wines with a very elegant base and with a balanced and very fresh fruitiness.

The Sabartés estate is located in the southernmost part of the Penedès region. The terrain is full of clay with presence of silt. The influence of the sea, which lies a few kilometres away, is undeniable. This Mediterranean character gives more fruitiness to the base wine.

HARVEST

The 2012 harvest was characterised by a winter with mild temperatures and low rainfall. In fact, it did not rain from November until just before budding. Despite the mild winter, budding was delayed a few days because of the onset of spring was somewhat cooler than usual, with some rain that ensured that the plant growth was adequate. In mid-spring, temperatures rose and rainfall fell sharply, although light rains occurred, 25-35 litres, between May and August, along with relatively low humidity, made the maturation and healthiness appropriate. In terms of dates both the colour and ripening were normalised.

TASTING NOTE

Pale yellow colour. Fresh or highly complex aroma that mix first notes of pastries, due to the aging of 36 months , with light notes of fresh fruit from the base wine. The mouth is fresh, soft and with very fine bubbles that fit perfectly into the complexity of cava. Elegant, serious, long, dry finish where all the frankness of cava is expressed.
