Product Description

The bottle of this cava personally indicates the vintage and date of its degüelle. For this unique coupage the winery utilized both a traditional coupage of Macabeo (Viura), Xarel-lo, and Parellada grapes, along with an additional coupage of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The “5V” in the name of this cava refers to the five grape varietals used in its coupage. The harvest of all of the grapes used by this winery are always realized by hand and for this season the harvest began with the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes in the end of August, 2008. The Macabeo (Viura) grapes were harvested in the beginning of September and the Xarel-lo grapes being harvest at the end of September. Finally, the Parellada grapes were harvested in the beginning of October of this same year. All of the grapes must, except the must of the Chardonnay grapes, were fermented separately in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. The Chardonnay grape must was fermented in French oak barrels from Allier. This cava was aged in its bottle for more than 36 months. This production of this vintage was limited to 5,600 bottles.
