2CV wine, organic and ecological
“2 CV” is the purest and most sincere expression of the micro-zone of Santa Creu de Creixà, a unique land of clayey and limestone soils worked under the principles of organic farming. Orange colour from the red skin of the variety. The nose is intense and refreshing, with notes of stone fruit and apple. It has a certain robustness and aromatic rusticity characteristic of the red Xarel·lo variety. The palate is broad and fruity and leaves a long and refreshing final feeling. Within the 2CV range, we also find the 2CV EXTREM wine and the 2CV Inalterat Cava. The three products
have as their axis the minimum intervention in the natural processes of both the evolution of wine and Cava and the life of the vineyard.
