Color: Bright golden hue with amber glints. Endless, fine beads, ascending with delicate effervescence to form a perfect crown. Nose: Clearly very aromatically elegant, clean, fruity and citric with a dash of lemon zest as well as lime and mandarin. A symphony of varietal aromas, subtle and yet clearly marking out its Macabeo grape variety characteristics. Palate: This is a lively cava, mouth-watering, rich and generous with a delicious and refined bouquet, where silky notes are perfectly combined with a balanced, crisp acidity. It is mouth-filling, creamy and with a hint of baked apple. Serve at a temperature of around 48°F. Its complex, subtle balance makes it superb with the most delicate, refined cuisine. It pairs extremely well with fish scallops, duck rillette, or mi-cuit foie with caramelized pear.

Yeasty, bready aromas of briny nectarine show early onset autolysis. This gran reserva brut is plump and round, but low on energy and bead. Flavors of dried papaya and melon include a note of brioche, while this is steady, bready, mature and ready on the finish. Drink now.

A creamy Cava, with soft, citrus peel acidity layered with notes of baked pear, anise and date. Lightly toasty on the subtle finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made, 250 cases imported.
