  • Manufacturing Process:

    • Wine growing : A selection from our best estates, tillage without herbicides and insecticides.
    • Harvest: Hand picked, in order to select the grapes in their optimum maturity and maximum health.
    • Vinification: Light pressing for the first portion of most (most flower) and static racking to respect fully the fruit. Cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 16°- 18°C. Each of the varieties that make up the blend (Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Chardonnay) ferment separately.
    • Bottling (Tiraje): The tirage liqueur and yeast have been selected by our team. Bottles are placed horizontally in the darkness of the cellar at a temperature of 16°C to allow a 2nd fermentation and ageing.
    • Second Fermentation and Ageing: The bottles are kept in the cellar at least 15 months at a temperature between 12° and 16°C. This contact time between the base wine and yeast gives it a unique personality and reserve category.
    • Movements: Automatic, using modern and efficient machinary to decant the yeast into the neck of the bottle.
    • Disgorging and final corkage: Automatic. Once the cava is free of the yeast used for the 2nd fermentation, we proceed to add the sugar(Nature <3gr. / lt.), And then the bottle is closed using natural cork.
