An explosion of aromas of wild strawberries, raspberries, petals... Fresh, expressive
Cava Brut Rosé is made with the Pinot Noir variety. The Pinot Noir comes from the vines surrounding the winery. The soil is composed of sand and gravel, with a high limestone content. The climate is Mediterranean, with mild winters, wet springs and hot summers.
For this cava, only the flower must (approximately 50% of the must) is used. The second fermentation takes place inside the bottle.
A bright pink colour with slight beading of persistent bubbles.
Fragrant aroma of blackcurrants, strawberries, cherry flowers and rhubarb. In the mouth it is tasty, fresh and refreshing, with persistent beading of very small bubbles. Elegant and long on the palette, with a pleasant finish.
