Product Description
Freixenet Brut Barroco is a Brut Reserve cava from the Freixenet winery was crafted from Parellada, Macabeo, and Xarel-lo grapes which were cultivated in poor soils that are full of rocks on the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains. These grapes are produced in a limited manner to ensure that they realize their perfect ripeness, are in very good health, and have the perfect balance between sugar and acidity. These grapes are harvested in September just as they realize their peak ripeness. They are then alcoholically fermented at controlled temperatures. The crianza ageing for this Brut cava lasts for 30 months. The enologists chose this age because they believed with this vintage and these specific grapes, this specific crianza age would perfectly integrate the cava´s effervesce and provide for the maximum expression of these grapes.
