Product Description
Details

Produced by Finca Can Feixes, Huguet Gran Reserva Brut Nature is made from two indigenous varieties, Macabeo and Parellada, complemented with a touch of Pinot Noir.

Produced from vineyards located on the hills of High Penedès, this Spanish sparkling wine was vinified in a meticulous and traditional way.

Harvested by hand, the grapes of this Corpinnat sparkling wine were pressed, and after that only the "free-run" juice was used to make the wine.

Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. After that, Huguet Gran Reserva 2012 was bottled to complete secondary fermentation and an ageing period of no less than 84 months.

No shipping liquor was added to this organic sparkling wine. The disgorging date is printed on the back label.

Additional Information
Appearance

The sparkling wine Huguet Gran Reserva Brut Nature has a straw yellow colour with some golden tinges.

Nose

Very much alive despite being over 8 years old, this Corpinnat sparkler carries some aromas of ripe pears, citrus and aromatic herbs, with some tips of pastry, butter and balsam. This blend  Macabeo, Parellada and Pinot Noir has a balsamic background.

Palate

Light and crisp, this organic sparkling wine from Penedès has some well-integrated bubbles which caress the palate, and an overall dry, crisp character which makes it very inviting. Remembrances of bone fruit, citrus, bitter herbs and some remembrances of flowers. This cava of Huguet de Can Feixes has a long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

Approachable, mature, and still very much alive, Huguet Gran Reserva Brut Nature 2012 is an extremely versatile sparkling wine.
