Jordi and Josep Casanovas' beautiful 60 hectare Can Macia estate has been bottling Cava since 1936 but until recently the family sold most of their production as grapes or wine to other Catalan producers. Following extensive investment in the cellars in 2000, the main emphasis has been on high quality estate-bottled wines. The mainstay of production remains Cava, with still wines becoming an increasingly important part of the range.
A classic blend of Wine_Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo grapes cultivated on the 60 hectare estate in the Penedés region near Barcelona.
Made using the traditional Cava method. The finished Cava has very small, fine, persistent bubbles, which are a result of the low temperatures in the wine cellar where fermentation takes place. The wine is matured for an extended period of 24 months before disgorgement to enhance the complex, fruity aromas.
A fresh and nicely creamy Cava with complex flavours of apples and stone fruits with herbal notes and some nutty, yeasty notes from time on the lees. Good acidity and a long, savoury finish.
