This is the new vintage of Llopart Leopardi, a very interesting Spanish sparkling wine made by one of the best producers in Penedès.
All of the grapes come from estate vines located near the town of Subirats, Alt Penedès.
Vinified in a traditional manner, secondary fermentation of Leopardi 2013 took place inside the bottle. After that, this organic sparkling wine was aged for 72 months prior to its commercial release.
The vintage label of this Corpinnat sparkling wine, which reproduces a design from the year 1887, provides information about the origins and the long winemaking tradition of Cavas Llopart winery, which dates back to the fourteenth century.
Production under 35,000 bottles.
The sparkling wine Llopart Leopardi has a bright straw colour with golden tinges.
Elegant and complex, this blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada smells of citrus and garrigue, alongside with some creamy aromas, notions of orange rind and white flowers and delicate nuances of withered leaves and dry fruit.
Delicate and well-crafted, this Corpinnat sparkling wine of Cavas Llopart has a wonderfully refined texture, with palate-melting, tiny bubbles. Rich and complex, with fresh touches of lime and lemon, some creamy notions of pastry and hints of orange blossom, white flowers, raw almonds and and aromatic herbs. Great acidity and long, persistent finish.
