Product Description
Details

The 2016 vintage of the Cava Àtica Extra Brut Gran Reserva is made from a blend of 85% Xarel·lo and 15% Chardonnay.

The plants grow in clayey-limestone soils near the Mediterranean sea, at an altitude of 350 metres above sea level. The winery has completed its conversion to organic farming.

Produced following the traditional method, this Spanish sparkling wine of Parató Vinícola was first fermented for a period of 16 days at a controlled temperature.

After that, Àtica Extra Brut Gran Reserva 2016 completed secondary fermentation inside the bottle, and was aged for a minimum of 30 months on its lees.

This organic Cava Gran Reserva from Penedès is perfect to drink throughout a whole meal.

Appearance

The Cava Ática Extra Brut Gran Reserva Brut is straw yellow with some greenish tinges.

Nose

This blend of Xarel·lo and Chardonnay shows sophisticated notes of pastry, fine lees, toasted bread and raw almonds. As it opens, aromas of ripe white fruit, dried apricots and withered flowers come to the fore.

Palate

Fresh and crisp, this Cava of Parató Vinícola has some tiny bubbles and a creamy, suave body. Orange rind, garrigue, sweet spices, some buttery remembrances and dim mineral notions. Medium finish.

Our personal opinion

Complex and very pleasant to drink, Àtica Extra Brut Gran Reserva 2016 is a versatile sparkler perfect to accompany a whole meal.
