The U Més U Fan Tres (1+1=3) winery crafted this organic sparkling wine from a traditional blend of Xarel·lo, Macabeo (both coming from a single estate) and Parellada (coming from two separate estates).
Harvested at their optimal ripening level, the grapes were first fermented in stainless steel tanks.
After that, 1+1=3 Cygnus Orgànic Brut Nature completed secondary fermentation in the bottle and was aged for 30 months in the cellar.
Drink this Cava over the next 2-3 years.
Bright straw yellow colour with some greenish glints.
Notes of aromatic herbs, white fruit, fine lees, pastry and toast, nuanced by some remembrances of honey and flowers.
Intense and savoury notes of white fruit, herbs, almonds and citrus. Crisp and zippy, with tiny bubbles and a long finish.
