PERETES ESTATE BRUT GRAN RESERVA 2011 - Unique design for extreme Xarel.lo

This is a very special cava that is named after the founder of the winery, Carles Sumarroca. The cava has a dedication from the three children to their mother: "This is a tribute to our mother; the love for the land is a constant in her life. "
Cava comes from a plot of Xarel.lo selected from all that we have based on criteria of high quality and personality. The bottle design, inspired by the ancient Greek amphorae, won an award from Sumarroca and ADI-FAD 2004.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINEYARD

The wine is grown in the Peretes plot, located in the Santa Creu sector of the Sumarroca estate. This is a gravelly piece of land where fossils can be found both on the surface and deep in the soil, giving the grapes their unique character. Planted over 50 years ago, the Xarel·lo vines have absorbed the essence of the land.

HARVEST

The 2011 harvest had a cool, rainy winter which allowed for budding at the expected time. Early spring was very dry with high temperatures, as found in early summer, until the end of May when the rain made the temperature drop. This cycle continued until early August making summer seem like a cool spring. Thereafter the temperature rose to above average with an extremely dry climate.

TASTING NOTES

Unique and very intense aroma with mineral notes and roasted varieties that gives it a unique combination. The palate is extremely tasty with fine bubbles that melt integrating the cava to give adequate complexity.  It begins with high fruitiness and finishes with very interesting fresh notes and minerals.

PRODUCTION
