Cava DG Viticultors Brut 2017
Availability: In stock
The grapes used to produce D.G. Viticultors Brut come from vineyards located at altitudes between 770 and 800 metres in some of Penedès most remote and unspoiled landscapes, not far from the town of Pontons.
While possessing an uncompromisingly Mediterranean character, the temperatures are milder than the Penedès' average. This fact allows the grapes to ripen slowly and steadily. As for the soils, the plots alternate some shallow, limestone soils with low levels of organic matter, with clay loam soils pepperd with gravel and rocks.
This uncommon Spanish sparkling wine was made from grapes harvested in late September. Once in the cellar, they were destemmed and gently crushed, after which only 45% of the resulting most was fermented.
Finally, the Chardonnay Cava DG Viticultors Brut 2017 was aged for a minimum of 15 months.
Pale and delicate, the Cava D.G. Viticultors Brut has a waxy colour with some steely tinges.
Delicate and aromatic, this varietal Chardonnay suggests aromas of white fruit, pears and green melon, together with some herbal notions, quince, fine lees and English custard.
This Cava of DG Viticultors is fresh, smooth and silky. Less fruit-oriented than on the nose, it has a creamy mousse and scintillating acidity. Delicately bitter, with a vegetal remembrance. Medium finish reminiscent of fine lees.
|Our personal opinion||
