Vinification Details

We plan the ideal moment for harvesting each grape variety. After destemming and pressing the grapes we obtain the must. We add yeast and the must ferments at 15º-17ºC. Once fermentation is complete, blending takes place and the resulting wine is bottled with the licor de tiraje mixture of sugar and yeast. The bottles are transferred to underground cellars where second fermentation occurs, followed by a period of ageing. The wine spends a minimum of 9 months in cellar before release.

History

In 1551, Jaume Codorníu began making still wines in Penedès, Spain. In 1872, having studied the ‘champenoise method’ of sparkling wine production in Northern France, Josep Raventós, a descendant of Codorníu, applied the technique to the traditional Penedès grape varieties of Macabeo, Parellada & Xarel.Lo and created the first bottle of Cava. Today Codorníu is an award-winning winery with the best selling Cava brand in the UK and back home in Spain.

Regional Information

The grapes used in making Tesco Cava Demi Sec come mainly from the area with the most Mediterranean climate in D.O. Cava, where local varieties exhibit their authentic character.
