This is the new vintage of Marta Joia Brut Reserva, the best known Cava produced by the Canals Family.
Harvested by hand from the beginning of September to the beginning of October, the grapes were selected and separately crushed in the most gentle way, so as to obtain only the "free-run" juice.
Then each wine must was independently fermented. After that, the wine was blended and bottled.
Afterwards, Marta Joia Brut Reserva 2015 completed secondary fermentation and was aged for 24 months in the cellar.
Drink this Cava from Penedès by the Canals Canals winery over the next 3-4 years.
Only 8,000 bottles produced.
The organic Cava Marta Joia Brut Reserva has a pale, clean, bright yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
Notes of white fruit, aromatic herbs and citrus. This Cava by Canals Canals also suggests some dim wooden aromas, some hints of pastry and dry fruit, and a buttery touch.
Extremely pleasant and smooth. Bubbles are well integrated and the texture of this wine by Ramon Canals is lush. Remembrances of pears, Granny Smith apples, lemon rind and pastry. This organic sparkling wine has a good acidity and medium finish that leaves an overall fresh sensation on the palate.
