Cuvée de Carol 2012

An organic sparkling wine from old macabeo vineyards

Cuvée de Carol is a cava with an irresistible personality that will satisfy the most exquisite palates. It is made mainly with the traditional variety of cava, the macabeo from Cal Jepet, an old vineyard of the Cal Miret estate. We combine it with a small percentage of chardonnay, grown at altitude and with a slight ageing in oak barrels. The result is a structured and complex cava that can be aged for a very long time.

The Cuvée de Carol cava reflects the tradition of elegance and refinement of the most precious sparkling wines. Dedicated to Maria Angels Carol, whose children are the third generation in charge of the winery.

Tasting Note

Sight

Straw yellow with hints of new gold.

Nose

Sophisticated aroma coming from the oak ageing. It has creamy notes reminiscent of candied fruit with well-balanced toasted nuances.

Mouth

In the mouth it is full-bodied and one can appreciate that it is a different cava. Long and persistent aftertaste. Complex and with a very well integrated carbonic.
