Availability: In stock
One of the top products of Bodegas Vilarnau, the sparkling wine Vilarnau Gran Reserva Brut Nature Vintage is, as usual, made from an interesting blend of grapes.
Specifically, this Cava from Penedès features two traditional varieties, Macabeo and Parellada, as well as the international ones Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, all sourced from vineyards certified organic.
Vinified following the traditional Champenoise method, after a prolonged cold-maceration the four wine musts were separately fermented. After that, the Cava Vilarnau Gran Reserva Brut Nature Vintage 2016 was bottled and aged for a minimum of 36 months.
This quality organic Cava Brut Nature from Penedès is very versatile.
The Cava Vilarnau Gran Reserva Brut Nature Vintage is medium straw with some steely glints and some golden tinges.
Fresh, intense notes of white fruit, Mediterranean garrigue and toast, combined with remembrances of yeasts, English custard, butter and smoke. This blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir has a background reminiscent of herbs de Provence.
Fresh and dry, this Cava from Bodegas Vilarnau of González Byass has some nicely integrated bubbles and a well-balanced acidity. Long finish, with delicate remembrances of white fruit, white flowers and aromatic herbs.
