2017 Juvé & Camps Brut Nature Gran Reserva Cava
This Cava of great personality owes its character to a harmonious blend of the classic, indigenous grape varieties. It is the winery's emblematic Brut Nature which they have proudly named "Reserva de la Familia". It is produced from the free run juice of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel·lo grapes coming from the Espiells, Can Massana and La Cuscona estates.
Wine Production: Hand-harvested organic grapes from their own vinyards picked at their optimal point of ripeness. Only free run must is used to make their cavas and wines. Wines are not fined and they favour the malolactic fermentation. To become Cava, the wine is bottled and "liqueur de tirage" is added, then yeasts make the secondary fermentation and create the bubbles. Bottles age on lees in their deep, humid, dimly lit cellar an averge of 36 months. During this time the autolysis process occurs which adds complexity and creaminess to the product. After the ageing, bottles are hand-riddled and disgorged to remove the sediments. No dosage is added.
Tasting Notes: The nose is generous, fruity and elegant, rich and complex from the long aging in bottle. On the palate it is quite dry, soft and round with a long and most exquisite finish.
55% Xarel.lo, 35% Macabeo, 10% Parellada
