Cava Gran Caus Clímax Rosé Brut Nature 2016
Availability: In stock
This refined Spanish sparkling wine is produced exclusively from Pinot Noir vineyards planted in the very heart of the Garraf Massif, at a distance of 15 kilometres from the Mediterranean sea.
The area is a dry mountain range with limestone soils peppered with marine fossils. This fact imparts Gran Caus Clímax Rosé Brut Nature a distinctively saline quality, a trait shared by all of the wines of the Can Ràfols dels Caus winery.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were first macerated for a short period of time and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then this Rosé Brut Nature was bottled, after which it completed secondary fermentation and a 30 month aging period. This organic sparkling wine is bone dry; thus, no sugar was added to it after the disgorgement.
The result is Gran Caus Clímax Rosé Brut Nature 2016. An irresistible Mediterranean Pinot Noir sparkler.
The sparkling wine Gran Caus Clímax Rosé Brut Nature 2016 has a bright salmon colour with some rosy tinges.
In a word: seductive. This varietal Pinot Noir conveys delicate aromas of red berries and aromatic herbs over a creamy and smokey background. There is also a gentle mineral intimation.
Dry, smooth, zippy. This sparkler of Can Ràfols dels Caus has a delicate texture, with tiny bubbles and a crisp acidity. Wild berries, Mediterranean garrigue, a fleck of pastry, and some mineral and salty tips. Very good acidity and long, yummy finish.
