Details

Produced by Can Descregut, a tiny but uncompromisingly quality-oriented winery virtually unknown outside its native Catalonia, Memòria Brut Nature is an organic Cava made from Xarel.lo and Chardonnay.

The grapes come from estate-owned, over 40-year-old vineyards located in some of Penedès' best areas.

Both varieties were separately vinified in stainless steel tanks. The this organic Spanish sparkling wine was blended, delicately filtered and bottled to complete secondary fermentation. 

Finally, Memòria Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2012 was aged for a minimum of 60 months in the cellar.

No shipping liquor was added to the wine after the disgorging date, which is printed on the back label. The wine is disgorged on demand.

Additional Information

Appearance

This Gran Reserva Brut Nature has an intense, bright yellow colour. Very attractive, Memòria Brut Nature Gran Reserva exhibits some ambarine tinges.

 

Nose

Elegantly mature, though also plenty of life, this Brut Nature from Penedès smells of toast, fine lees, pastry and dry fruit. On the background, this blend of Xarel·lo & Chardonnay insinuates aromas of citrus, white fruit and flowers.

 

Palate

Quite complex, lush and balanced. The Cava Memòria Gran Reserva by Can Descregut  suggests white fruit and citrus, with a distinctive note of orange rind, as well as some hints of flowers, broom and dry fruit. Crisp acidity, tiny bubbles and long, delicately toasted finish, resulting from its long ageing.

 

Our personal opinion

A fabulous and confidential value of a rare elegance, Memòria Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2012 by Can Descregut winery is an extremely versatile organic Cava.
