Cuvée de Carol 2011
Cuvée de Carol, a cava with a unique personality.
Macabeu from an old vineyard of Cal Miret combined with Chardonnay cultivated at high altitudes, together with a touch of oak barrel, give us a structured and complex cava that can have a very long ageing.
It reminds us of a lady from the haute bourgeoisie, full of elegance and refinement. A cava made to satisfy the most exquisite palates.
|60% Macabeu and 40% Chardonnay cultivated applying Biodynamic farming.|
|Enjoy it with hearty dishes; legume and poultry stews, and roasted white meat.|
|The Chardonnay ferments at 16-20ºC in new french oak barrels during 13 days. Macabeu ferments in stainless steel tanks at 16ºC during 15 days and with daily battonage at the end of the fermentation.|
|Ageing over thin lees for two months with
battonage 3 times per week for the Chardonnay.
|Second fermentation in the bottle following to the traditional method, with ageing for 90 months.|
|Straw yellow with hints of new old color.|
|Sophisticated aroma that comes from ageing in oak barrels. It has creamy notes that remind us at candied fruit with toasty hints very well balanced.|
|In the mouth we can appreciate that it is a different cava. Long and persistent aftertaste. Complex and with very well integrated dioxide.|
|Serve at 8 – 10ºC.|
