Non Vintage

Denomination of Origin:
D.O. CAVA - Region: Penedès Spain
Varieties: 35% Xarel—lo, 35% Macabeo, 30% Parellada

Viticulture:
The vineyards are in the Baix Penedès and Central Penedès areas at an average altitude of 250 metres above sea level, with deep soils and average water retention capacity. The vines have been set out on espalier, with Royat type trimming or in a traditional
basin, with pre-trimming and green trimming common practice in both cases. The harvesting is done manually and production is 12,000 kg/Ha.

Elaboration:
Once each variety has been collected separately, the grapes are de-stemmed and the pulp is cooled to 14º C before pneumatic pressing at 0.2 bar. Then the flower must is separated 55%, followed by the static silting. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel
tanks at a controlled temperature of between 16 and 18º C.
After careful coupage of the three varieties, gentle clarification is performed, as well as tartar stabilisation and final filtering.

The second fermentation takes place in the bottle with the traditional method, with minimum ageing on lees of 15 months.

Tasting note:

Colour: Greenish yellow with golden hues. Fine and persistent mousse.
Aroma: Citrus, lime and green apple aromas. Hints of stone fruit and dried fruits.
Taste: Elegant and balanced, with purity of fruity aromas and refreshing acidity.

Gastronomy:
It is ideal as an aperitif or to accompany fish and savoury pastries. Its complexity allows it to be enjoyed also with pasta or white meat dishes.

Serving suggestions:
It should be served at a temperature of 5º- 6º C and be kept in a cool, dry place. Cava does not improve with age once sealed, so it is best to consume it within 18 months of purchase.
