Product Description
Details

VallDolina Brut Gran Reserva 2012 is an organic sparkling wine, marketed under the DO Cava label and crafted by the Masia Can Tutusaus winery to celebrate its 25th aniversary.  

Made from a traditional blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo, Parellada, plus some Chardonnay, alcoholic fermentation of the still wine took place at a controlled temperature of 16ºC. Then this Spanish organic cava VallDolina Gran Reserva Brut was bottled and added sugar and yeasts to complete secondary fermentation, in this case at a temperature of 13ºC.

Aged for 48 months on its lees, degorging was performed manually, that is, without freezing the upper bottleneck. Finally, this great Cava was added a tiny amount of dosage liquor, the well-known "liqueur d'expedition", to harmonise it and round it off.

Appearance

This organic gran reserve cava ValldolinaBrut displays a clean, bright, straw yellow colour with steely tinges.

Nose

This organic sparkling wine from Penedès displays an earnest, old-school nose of white fruit, herbs and dry fruit. We also perceive hints of butter and smoke, along with notes of toasted almonds. 

Palate

This sparkler shows a manly demeanour, displaying flavours of citrus, aromatic herbs and some hazelnut and almond remembrances. The wine has a vinous quality in it, with a somewhat big body that is exquisitely balanced by a tight acidity and a well-integrated bubble. Long finish with a creamy aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

VallDolina Brut Gran Reserva 2012 is an extremely versatile Cava, perfectly suited to accompany a whole meal.
