Wine making: Slow fermentation of cold wine for 2-3 months in the bottle. Special because we've added a thermometer on the back label that will indicate the best temperature for serving cava.
Numerous streams of a fine mousse, pale yellow in colour with lots of green notes.
Balanced flower aromas with nature fruit and spicy notes and hints of orange blossoms, honey and toast. Very dry on the palate with toasted notes of dried nuts and baked flour combined with ripe, un harvested fruits, raisin, peach and apricot compote. Very well structured and complex with a lasting, balanced finish that pairs well even with roasted and smoked meat dishes.
