Availability: In stock
Produced by Codorniu, Ars Collecta Blanc de Noirs is an original Spanish sparkling wine made from a uncommon blend of 85% Pinot Noir, sourced from vineyards located in Costers del Segre, Xarel·lo from Penedès, and Trepat, a red grape indigenous to the southern Catalan region of Conca de Barberà.
Hand-harvested at dawn at the beginning of August, the grapes were gently pressed and then each variety was separately fermented in stainless steel tanks.
After that, this Blanc de Noirs Cava belonging to the Ars Collecta collection completed secondary fermentation in the bottle. Finally, Ars Collecta Blanc de Noirs 2015 was aged for a minimum of 35 months before hitting the market.
This is a food-friendly Cava Gran Reserva. It will perfectly match a multi-course meal.
Clean and bright, the Cava Ars Collecta Blanc de Noirs is medium straw with some golden and purple glints.
Showing an understated complexity, this blend of Pinot Noir, Trepat and Xarel·lo smells of white flowers and wild berries, with remembrances of fine lees and French briocherie, hints of flowers and a note of Med garrigue.
Fresh, textured and structured, this sparkling wine from Cordoniu has tiny, palate-caressing bubbles, a steely acidity and an excellent definition. Long finish with remembrances of red berries, pastry and white flowers.
