The Cava Vilarnau Brut Reserva is made from vines located at a considerable altitude, sheltered by the iconic Montserrat mountains.
Made from a traditional DO Cava blend, this Spanish sparkling wine substitutes the well-known Vilarnau Brut Reserva Edición Gaudí.
Produced by the Vilarnau winery, a branch of Grupo González Byass, this sparkler is mainly made from Macabeo, complemented with Parellada and Xarel·lo. Secondary fermentation of Vilarnau Brut Reserva took place inside the bottle, where this Cava from Penedès was aged for a minimum of 15 on its lees.
Drink until 2021.
This Cava from Sant Sadurní d’Anoia has a yellow colour with some golden tinges. Vilarnau Brut Reserva is clean and bright.
Straightforward, clean aromas of ripe white fruit, combined with a touch of orange blossom, white flowers and dry fruit. On the background, Vilarnau Barcelona Brut Reserva suggests a note of fine lees, toasted bread and aromatic herbs.
Smooth, fresh and pleasant, this cava brut reserva by Vilarnau is savoury and well-balanced. Nicely integrated bubbles and good acidity, with a long, inviting finish.
