Castell d’Or Cava Brut Organic

22.00

Description

Sourced exclusively from Castell d’Or’s certified organic vineyards, this Cava Brut is a blend of the three native Catalan grape varietals, Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada. Each grape is harvested and fermented separately, with blending following completion of the first fermentation. Second fermentation is then carried out in the bottle per the traditional method of Cava production, with the bottles stored in cool underground cellars for a minimum of 14 months.

Very pale in colour with a silver froth and fine bubbles, the nose is fresh and fruit-driven, with hints of tropical and stone fruits. The palate is fresh and elegant, punchy citrus with hints of apricot and green apple, with a refreshing acidity and dry finish.

Great as an aperitif or base for a celebratory cocktail, this also pairs brilliantly with white fish and shellfish, or creamy chicken dishes.

Producer: Castell d'Or

The first cooperative winery in Catalonia was the Cooperativa Agrícola de Barberà de la Conca, formed in 1894. The cooperative movement brought villages together and ensured the financial survival of thousands of growers and their families through the sharing of knowledge, resources, technical innovation and transport, as well as pooled investment in new wineries. A new generation of architects, disciples of modernism, created "cathedrals of wine", intended to increase productivity and quality, and drive economies of scale.

In 2006, sixteen of these historic cooperatives, including Barberà de la Conca, came together to form Castell d'Or, a new collective of more than 2,200 families working more than 6,200 hectares of vineyards in Catalonia. New facilities using the latest technology in winemaking, maturation, storage, and energy and water conservation produce in excess of 8 million bottles a year.

The proximity to the coast and the high altitude of some of the vineyards — situated up to 750m above sea level — provide a diversity of microclimates best suited for the individual requirements of Cava's three native grape varieties, Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parelleda. This optimisation of growing and diversity of grapes and terroir allows for the creation of multiple Cavas with unique characteristics, qualities recognised with the awarding of multiple gold medals at the some of the world's most prestigious wine shows, including Mundus Vini and Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.
