Details

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.

This Cava from Penedès features the usual blend of MacabeoParellada and Chardonnay, but this time the three varieties are complemented by a touch of Pinot Noir

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.

Drink Vilarnau Gran Reserva Brut Nature Vintage 2012 over the next 4 years.

Additional Information

Appearance

The Cava Vilarnau Gran Reserva Brut Nature Vintage has a very bright, clean straw yellow colour with some steely glints and some golden tinges.

Nose

Fresh, intense notes of white fruit, Mediterranean garrigue and toast, combined with remembrances of yeasts, English custard, butter and smoke. This Cava with Chardonnay & Pinot Noir has a background of dry fruit and toast.

Palate

Fresh and dry, the Cava Vilarnau by González Byass is dry and elegant, with some nicely integrated bubbles and a well-balanced acidity. Vilarnau Barcelona has a  complex finish, with delicate remembrances of white fruit, white flowers and aromatic herbs.

Our personal opinion

A great all-rounder, Vilarnau Gran Reserva Brut Nature Vintage 2012 drinks wonderfully without food, but it will also pair well with almost any dish you fancy.
