Both varieties used to produce this Spanish sparkling wine come from vineyards located in the town of Guardiola de Mont-Rubí, in the highest area of the DO Penedès.
Separately harvested and vinified, the Pinot Noir grapes were prevented from having any contact with the skins, so that the resulting Organic Cava did not get any colour.
After the completion of secondary fermentation, 1+1=3 Brut Nature Especial Gran Reserva 2015 was aged for 60 months in the bottle.
Drink this Gran Reserva Brut Nature Cava through 2024.
The Cava 1+1=3 Brut Nature Especial Gran Reserva has a straw yellow colour with some golden tinges.
This elegant Blanc de Noirs shows some well-balanced aromas of citrus, white flowers and white fruit, combined with creamy notes of pastry, aniseed, menthol and smoke. This blend of Xarel.lo and Pinot Noir certainly has a very interesting and characteristic nose.
Smooth and crisp, this Cava Gran Reserva Especial from the U més U Fan Tres winery has a delicate mousse and a creamy texture. Red berries, white fruit, delicate notes of bitter herbs, hints of pastry and dry fruit and a long, complex finish.
