Crafted by Bodegas Parxet, a respected Cava producer, Titiana Vintage is a Spanish sparkling wine produced solely from Chardonnay.
It is produced in the coastal region of Alella, Catalonia's tiniest Designation of Origin, located within a stone throw from Barcelona.
Interestingly, the Chardonnay vineyards are grown in the sandy soils typical of the region, locally known as "Sauló".
After a meticulous harvest carried out in little boxes, this Cava by Bodega Titiana - Grupo Parxet was traditionally vinified.
Then Titiana Vintage 2011 was aged for a minimum of 15 months in the cellar.
Drink over the next 3 years.
This Cava Brut Nature has a pale yellowish-gold colored body with green reflections. Titiana Vintage is bright, with lively bubbles typical of a Chardonnay based sparkling wine. This cava has a rosy and foamy crown.
The nose of this wine is defined by the creamy and butter aromas typical of Chardonnay. Lactic nuances, hints of English custard, French patisserie and churned butter. In addition, there are toasted notes along with ripe white fruit. Titiana by Parxet has a complex and expressive nose.
This Cava by Bodegas Parxet has a very pleasant entry onto the palate, lively and yummy. Toasted nuances, dry fruit, a hint of aromatic herbs, a touch of citrus and, again, a creamy-buttery layer. Smooth-textured, this Cava from Alella has a long, creamy finish.
