Cava Vilarnau Brut Nature Reserva 2018
Availability: In stock
Made mostly from the traditional varieties Macabeo and Parellada, this Spanish sparkling wine is complemented with a 15% Chardonnay. The Chard and the Macabeo come from 30-year-old vines, while the Parellada comes from some of Penedès' highest vineyards, around 700 metres of altitude.
Separately vinified according to the variety, after a 30-day fermentation Vilarnau Brut Nature Reserva 2018 was blended and bottled. Then this Vilarnau Brut Nature Vintage completed secondary fermentation and was aged for a minimum of 24 months.
The cava Vilarnau Brut Nature Reserva has a pale, bright yellow colour with some golden tinges.
Rich aromas reminiscent of white fruit and citrus, nuanced by notes of custard and bakery. As it opens, this blend of Macabeo, Parellada and Chardonnay suggests notes of flowers, dry fruit and herbs.
Elegant, fresh and suggestive, with a good balance and a pleasantly dry character. This sparkling wine of the Vilarnau winery has some creamy bubbles which caress the palate and a long finish with remembrances of ripe white fruit, honey and toast.
