Overview

Giro Ribot `Cava` Sparkling Brut Rose NV (6x 750mL), Spain. Cork.

Grape Variety: 85% Trepat, 15% Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes: Very bright, attractive, cherry-pink colour with well developed, small and constant bubbles forming a gentle rosary. Exuberant fruity aromas dominate, with intense notes of fresh red fruits and hints of fine lees and dried berries, together with subtle, yet very attractive, fragrances of fresh strawberries. On the palate this cava explodes with juicy red fruit flavours. Rich, lively and well balanced, it has a lingering and pleasant aftertaste with an elegant carbonic finish.

Vineyard: El Penedés A.C.O. Cava, Spain

Age of the Vineyard: Between 25 and 30 years.

Time of Harvest: Pinot Noir in mid-August and Trepat at the beginning of October.

Altitude: 175-250 metres above sea level

Harvest Method: Manually harvested grapes (bush vines).

Winemaking: Cava made with the best winemaking techniques and the utmost care. The destemmed grapes undergo a cold soak for several days in order to maximize the primary aromas. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a very low temperature between 12-14°C for several days. The coupage wine obtained undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle according to the méthode traditionnelle. They employ a strain of yeast that increases mannoprotein content in the cava in order to achieve a velvety and creamy mouth feel. The cava ages in the silence of their cellar on its lees for 12-20 months.
