Vinified following the traditional method, after the completion of secondary fermentation this Spanish sparkling wine was aged for 36 months in the bottle.
The Cava Nadal Gran Reserva Brut Nature 2012 has a production of 29,920 bottles.
This sparkling wine, Nadal black label, is produced only in exceptional years.
The Cava Nadal Gran Reserva Brut Nature has a bright, intense yellow colour with some amber tinges.
Clean aromas of pears and yellow apples, a dash of aniseed and aromatic herbs. This Brut Nature from Penedès also suggests some remembrances of pastry, flowers and dry fruit.
This elegant Brut Nature from Penedès is smooth and silky. After six years, bubbles are remarkably well integrated, and this wine by Caves Nada is rather classy. Citrus, jasmine, pastry, bitter almonds and a distant note of chamomile. Nadal black label is crisp and fresh, with a long finish with remembrances of aniseed and fennel.

A Cava that provides good drinking pleasure. Enjoyable and nicely priced.
I can't understand the price. Almost 10 years old and less than 13 euros. The sparkler, by the way, is great. Bought 3 cases in a row.
