Confidential and not easy to find, Ramon Canals Gran Reserva Limitada 2009 is a high-end Catalan sparkling wine.
All of the grapes come from over 40-year-old vineyards located in Higher Penedès.
Harvested between late September and October, each variety was pressed and then only the "free-run" juice was used to produce the wine.
Separately vinified in stainless steel tanks, after the completion of alcoholic and secondary fermentations the wine was aged in the bottle for a minimum of 36 months.
Produced by Cavas Ramon Canals, the disgorging date is printed on the back label.
Drink this age-worthy Cava until 2022.
Open the bottle a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.
Production around 5,000 bottles.
Bright, straw yellow colour with dim golden tinges.
Complex notes of pastry, English custard, dry fruit and aromatic herbs, intertwined with notions of citrus, white fruit, white flowers and toast.
Dry, precise and very fresh, with good grip and a remarkable complexity. Dim bitter notions, alongside remembrances of raw almonds, butter, jasmine, rosemary, grapefruit and balsam. Great acidity, and long, inviting finish.
