One of the top Spanish sparkling wines produced by Caves Vilarnau, the new vintage of Vilarnau Gran Reserva Brut Nature Vintage comes with a new packaging and a slightly different composition.
Vinified following the traditional Champenoise method, after a prolonged cold-maceration the four wine musts were separately fermented. After that, this Brut Nature Cava was bottled and aged for a minimum of 36 months.
