Castillo Perelada Cava Brut Reserva NV (1x75cl)

Perelada Brut Reserva is made with wine of the three typical cava varieties: Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada. This is a classic cava made according to the traditional method, with the utmost rigor and care that are characteristic of Perelada.

Pale yellow colour. Good bubble detachment. Thanks to its ageing, it has developed a fine aroma with fruit hints. Its well balanced structure, elegance and sensorial richness form an unmistakable personality.

Gonzalez Byass Vilarnau Rosado NV (1x 75cl)

Vilarnau Cava is made in a state of the art winery, with sleek minimalist design. The estate lies 250 metres above sea level, enjoying a Mediterranean climate. It is shielded by the Montserrat Mountains to the north and the Littoral range to the south. The winery is located close to the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. Specialising in small-scale, artisan production of exclusive, high quality cavas, the winery shares its innovative, creative and dynamic nature with Spain’s most avant-garde city.

The red Trepat and Pinot Noir grapes macerate at 8°C for 18 hours in contact with the skins so as to extract the maximum colour and aromas. In these varieties the precursors of the aroma are found primarily in the skin. By tchilling the grapes they manage to protect these precursors which will later turn into the primary aromas that are characteristic of this wine, namely floral and ripe red fruit. After maceration, the must which is already pink is crushed. This is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 14°C. The wine is then blended and bottled with the second fermentation taking place in bottle over a period of around 6 weeks at a constant temperature of 15°C.  This cava remains in contact with the yeast for at least 15 months. 

This cava is an intense pink colour with great aromatic complexity and it reflects the Mediterranean character of the area where it is made. With plenty of sunlight the grapes here ripen more fully, thus developing greater colour and aromartic complexity than is perhaps expected.

Trepat and Pinot Noir grapes give this delicious pink fizz a bright redcurrant colour, and vibrant ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit characters. Aged for 18 months prior to disgorgement, it is soft and juicy in character with refreshing balanced acidity – the perfect aperitif.

Recaredo Cava Brut de Brut 2008 (1x75cl)

For almost a century, Recaredo has maintained a firm commitment to produce terroir wines that reflect the landscapes of the Alt Penedès (Barcelona) as honestly and transparently as possible. They make only vintage Brut Nature Cavas with a distinctive character marked by long ageing.

Recaredo's wines are both organic and biodynamic; they let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover crop plays a crucial role, fostering biodiversity, loosening the soil, and regulating water retention and drainage (essential in the dry farming system practised).

Grapes were harvested from Recaredo’s Serral del Vell estate in the Bitlles Valley Highlands. Serral del Vell hillock is a mainly calcareous terrain characterised by disjointed landscapes in the county of the Alt Penedès, Barcelona.

Key winemaking features: 53% Xarel-lo, 47% Macabeu. Manually harvested; all Xarel-lo component aged in oak casks; secondary fermentation in bottle (as with all Cava and Champagne); aged in bottle for a minimum of 8 years; riddled and disgorged by hand.

Recaredo describe this as a "well-upholstered wine with green plum and apple aromas". The palate is deep, pure, structured, vinous, long and rich with resonant acidity.  Matches best with charcuterie, oysters or white meats.
