Produced by Can Ràfols dels Caus, Gran Caus Clímax Brut Nature is made from over 20-year-old grapevines planted in the Garraf Massif, a mountain range overlooking the Mediterranean a 30-minute drive from Barcelona. The area has limestone soils with an abundance of marine fossils which bring a peculiar salinity and minerality to the grapes.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were separately fermented and vinified. After the completion of secondary fermentation, Gran Caus Clímax Brut Nature 2016 was aged for 30 months in the bottle before its commercial release.
This Penedès sparkling wine has a truly distinctive character.
The sparkler Gran Caus Clímax Brut Nature has an intense yellow colour with some golden tinges.
Complex and sophisticated, this blend of Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Chenin Blanc suggests aromas of dry fruit and white fruit, with a note of baked apples and some creamy notes of citrus marmalade, nuanced by hints of balsam, mineral and herbs de Provence.
This sparkling wine of Can Ràfols dels Caus has focus and a smooth, luscious texture, enlivened by some tiny bubbles. Fruit-driven and crisp, with notes of Mediterranean underbrush, white flowers, citrus and a mineral tip. Long finish with remembrances of dry fruit.
