Cava Rosado Sumarroca  

Cava Brut Rosé

Colorfull Summer

A wine made from selected grapes from the Pinot Noir plots on the Sumarroca estate (Sant Sadurní d’Anoia).

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINEYARD

The land of the Sumarroca estate is poor, chalky and gravelly. The influence of the sea is diminished by the Garraf mountains which dry out the sea winds, while the pre-coastal mountain range protects the estate against dry winds from inland. These conditions produce highly elegant wines with a balanced, very fresh fruitiness. 

HARVEST

The 2014 yearly cycle began with heavy rains in November before a mild and dry winter. Budding came a day or two in advance of previous years and early on 60 litres of rain fell, stimulating good growth. Spring was gentle, especially in the daytime, and rather dry. Just at the end of May, a succession of lengthy rainfalls arrived. In June the temperatures rose considerably, with high levels of humidity. The rest of the summer saw moderate daytime temperatures and regular minimums, with some showers. The harvest started a little later than usual and resulted in a smaller crop than the year before.

TASTING NOTES

Layered mid-pink colour. A very intense cava with elegant notes of red fruit and strawberries combined with floral hints. Fruity and unctuous in the mouth, with a delicate finish.

PRODUCTION

Maceration in press at low temperatures to draw the most from the variety’s colour and personality. Static filtration for 24 hours and fermentation in stainless steel vats at 16ºC. Aged in stacks for around 14 months.
