Cava Duran Origin Gran Reserva Brut 2016
Availability: In stock
Produced by Caves Duran, Duran Gran Reserva is made from a blend of three native varieties and an international one.
Namely, Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada, complemented with a touch of Chardonnay. Harvest went from August -Chardonnay- to October -Parellada-, after which the grapes were meticulously selected in the cellar.
Alcoholic fermentation of this Cava took place in stainless steel tanks. Then Duran Origin Gran Reserva Brut was bottled and completed secondary fermentation.
Finally, Duran Origin Gran Reserva Brut 2016 was aged for 48 months in the cellar before its commercial release.
This excellent Cava from Penedès has a production around 18,000 bottles.
The Cava Duran Origin Gran Reserva Brut is pale yellow with some golden and greenish tinges.
This blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo, Parellada and Chardonnay smells of white fruit, with dim citrus notions, subtle herbal nuances and remembrances of aniseed, pastry, toast and smoke.
Fresh, lively and well-balanced, this Gran Reserva from Cavas Duran has a creamy body and a smooth mousse. Rosy grapefruit, dry fruit, pineapple, some buttery notes and remembrances of dry fruit. Excellent acidity and pleasant finish.
