Produced by Cavas Duran, Marta Passió Reserva Brut is a Spanish rosé Cava made from a traditional blend of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel·lo, plus a tiny amount of Grenache, in order to give the wine a subtle rosy tinge.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level. Soils have very low levels of organic matter. Climate is strictly Mediterranean.
The grapes were harvested by hand, the Parellada being the last one in October. They were separately vinified in stainless steel tanks using only the "free-run" juice.
Then this rosé sparkling wine was blended and bottled to complete secondary fermentation.
Finally, Marta Passió Reserva Brut 2016 was aged for a minimum of 24 months in the cellar before its commercial release.
Drink this Cava from now until 2020+.
The enticing Marta Passió Reserva Brut has a pale, delicate rosy colour with some onion skin coloured tinges.
Very fresh, this rosé Cava suggests notes of aromatic herbs combined with delicate notions of white fruit, citrus, pastry and toast. On the background, this cava by Ramon Canals exhibits some remembrances of juicy red fruit.
Fresh, savoury and elegant, Marta Passió is reminiscent of a Medterranean forest, with aromatic herbs and red berries combining with hints of white fruit and citrus, particularly pomelo. This Brut Reserva has some creamy, melting bubbles, a great acidity and long finish with remembrances of red fruit and pastry.
