Product Description
This Grand Reserve Brut Nature cava from the Vitícola Parató winery of the Pla del Penedès is a complex sparkling wine with a unique personality. This cava was primarily crafted from Xarel-lo grapes which were aged in oak barrels. Elias-Terns also has Macabeo, Parellada, and Chardonnay grapes in its coupage. The disgorgement process of this cava was realized by hand after the long crianza age of 84 months with Rima rotations. Elias i Terns Grand Reserve Brut Nature is a cava that is marked by its personality and structure and this cava is perfect to pair with an entire meal. To enjoy this cava to the fullest extent, and to discover its full personality, we recommend that you serve it at a slightly warmer temperature than you would a normal cava (try it between 50-54 ºF). The 2013 edition of the Guía Peñín scored the 2004 vintage of Elías-Terns Brut Nature Gran Reserva at a 90/100. This is a rare Spanish cava that was limited in production to only 1,674 bottles.

Additional Information
Appearance This cava, Elias-Terns by the Parató Vinícola winery has a clean and bright appearance in a glass. There is golden straw colored body that casts pistachio green reflections. This cava has fine effervescence that is slow-to-rise and forms a delicate crown at the surface.
Nose Elegance and complexity combine in this cava to present a magnificent nose. Of course, as this cava opens to the air, powerful crianza ageing notes become present from its very old age. There are toasted nut aromatics, fine smoked barrel notes from the Xarel-lo, fresh pastries and custards, and freshly baked brioche toast aromatics in this nose. All of this cava´s aromatics are presented along a dry earthy background that is accompanied by overripe fruits.
Palate This palate is even more elegant than this wine´s nose, which we realize can be hard to imagine. This cava, Elias I Terns of Xarel-lo, Macabeo, Chardonnay, and Parellada, has a creamy and powerful palate that provides for a very high level of volume. This cava´s effervescence will melt in your mouth so quickly that it nearly disappears. This is a tremendous palate that is full of flavors and subtleties. There are crianza ageing notes that present nutty sensations and flavors that are reminiscent of fine pastries. There is very well-balanced citric acidity that is pleasantly refreshing. This cava has a persistent finish that is silky, creamy, and represents all of the character and flavors of this cava´s long crianza ageing. There is a slight bitterness in the aftertaste.
Our personal opinion Sure, you could ask for more, the grass is always greener on the other side, but to get a better quality sparkling wine than this you will need to pay at least double, especially if you want to go with a French champagne. The fact is that Elias-Terns Brut Nature Grand Reserve is a tremendous cava that we are proud to be offering on our website. This cava is a perfect companion.
