Product Description
Details

Produced by Cava Gatell, a young and up-and-coming winery from Penedès, Gatell Ambrosía Brut Nature Gran Reserva is an interesting Spanish sparkling wine made from the traditional Cava combination of grapes.

A blend of Xarel·loMacabeo and Parellada, the three varieties were vinified in an unusual manner. First, each variety was fermented in French oak barrels and aged for some months. After blending the three base wines, the wine was put back into the oak barrels, where it was aged for a further months.

Then Gatell Ambrosía Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2016 was bottled. Once secondary fermentation was completed, this cava brut nature was aged for 40 months minimum before being disgorged.

A versatile sparkler, this cava gran reserva will pair well with virtually any food you fancy.

Only 4,517 bottles produced.

Appearance

El cava Gatell Ambrosía Brut Nature Gran Reserva is pale yellow with some greenish reflections.

Nose

Lively aromas of citrus and tropical fruit, with a smidgen of vanilla, cinnamon and fresh mint, evolving into dry fruit, ground coffee and herbs. This blend of  Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada is original and seductive.

Palate

This sparkling wine of Cava Gatell is nimble, fresh and subtle, with small bubbles, a citrusy acidity and nice overall balance. Gently toasty and creamy, with a long finish leaving a delicately bitter aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

Impeccably crafted, Gatell Ambrosía Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2016 is a moreish and lively Cava.

Flawless entry-level Cava. If Cavas across the board had this level of quality they could be a serious alternative to Champagne.
