The surprise of an original, classic but peculiar Cava comes from the desire to honor its origins, the Champagnat. The surprise of the integration of cultures. Indeed, adding to its origins, this cava is made from Xarel.lo, Macabeu, and Parella- da, the three classic varieties of Catalonian vines. A 12-month mousse fermentation on slats allows all its splendor: a fresh, young, and fruity cava with no expedition liquor that does not condition.
Its straw yellow, clean and bright color, with a soft and constant carbonate, is an allegory of the land, the Mediterranean, heat, celebration, and sharing. Made of very young fruit flavors, combines notes reminiscent of green and sour apple, with hints of fields and dew. It brings an essen- tial mouthfeel of brut nature, pleasantly constant carbonic and acid and clean finish.
A mild summer, a hot afternoon, anytime is good to enjoy a product that celebrates a peculiar word: CAVA.
