Tasting Notes

This cava displays intensely ripe summer red fruit aromas – raspberries, redcurrants and cherries. The palate is equally fruity and appealing, with a beautifully balanced acidity and a long, attractive, refreshing finish.

Grape Variety

Pinot Noir (85%), Trepat (15%)

Vinification Details

The Pinot Noir grapes are macerated for 5-6 hours and the Trepat grapes for 8-12 hours before pressing. Following racking to remove the sediment, the must is transferred to separate stainless steel tanks for the first alcoholic fermentation, which takes place at controlled temperatures of between 16 and 18°C, using specially selected yeasts. On completion of the fermentation, the young wine is kept in the winery at a constant temperature of 12°C until the final blend.

History

Based in Catalonia, northeast Spain, and founded in the 19th century, Freixenet remains a family business. With winery estates worldwide, Freixenet has grown to become one of the world's leading producers of both still and sparkling wine. Penedès in Catalonia is the largest and most important sparkling wine region. It is split into 3 zones ranging in altitude from 250m to 800m above sea level, each with a distinct climate.

Regional Information

The Pinot Noir grapes are grown at the Mas Bernich vineyard at Masquefa in the High Penedès, on sandy-clay soil. The Trepat grapes are grown on chalky soils low in organic matter. The Pinot Noir vines are wire trained and Double Cordon-Royat pruned. They are pruned down to 27,000 bunches per hectare, in order to limit the yield to 6,500kg per hectare.
