Our vineyards head down the southern face of the hill from the Castle located on the vineyard to the small stream. The vines receive excellent sunshine and sway, many times energetic, from the sea breeze, which leaves dew every morning. In bright and clear days one can see the sea from the Castle.
Cava elaborated with the three classical varieties (Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada) following the “champenoise method” and maintained for more than 9 months in contact “sur lies”.
- Training system:
Normal classical trellising system, allowing optimal sun and air permeation
- Tasting Notes:
Bright medium golden straw color. Lively, fruity aromas and flavors of spiced and dried apples and pears, white toffee, and meringue with a soft, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, distinctive, medium-length mineral, smoked nuts, baked plantain, and minerals finish with well-integrated tannins and light oak. A nice appetizing cava.Tastings.com
