Nose

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.
