Cuvée de Carol
Cava Gran Reserva
Cuvée de Carol, a cava with an unique personality. Macabeu from an old vine of Cal Miret combined with Chardonnay cultivated at high altitudes and with a touch of oak barrel, give us an structured and complex cava that could have a very long ageing. It reminds us of a lady from the haute bourgeoisie, full of elegance and refinement.
A product that goes a step furhter. A cava made to satisfy the most exquisite palates.
60% Macabeu, 40% Chardonnay cultivated applying Organic farming.
Enjoy it with hearty dishes: legume and poultry stews, and roasted white meat.
Serve at 8-10ºC.
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.
Second fermentation in the bottle following to the traditional method, with ageing for 60 months.
Ageing over thin lees for two months with battonage 3 times per week for the Chardonnay.
Straw yellow with hints of new gold color.
Sophisticated aroma that comes from the ageing in oak barrels. It has creamy notes that reminds 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 after taste. Complex and with a very well Integrated dioxide.
