The varieties were separately fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, with the exception of Chardonnay, which fermented in French oak barrels. Finally, Duran 5V Gran Reserva Brut 2012 was blended and aged for a minimum of 48 months.
The production of this Spanish sparkling wine totalized only 3,210 bottles.

Intense, complex and elegant, this blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo, Parellada, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is reminiscent of ripe white fruit, exotic spices and white flowers, with tips of fine lees, baked appels, aromatic herbs and vanilla.
Creamy and seductive, with a zesty acidity and a vinous, structured body. This cava of Cava Duran has a delicate mousse and a long finish with remembrances of white fruit, English custard, herbs de Provence and dry fruit.
