CAVA BRUT RESERVA, Bodegas Sumarocca, 2015



All those who adore Champagne´s classic fresh brown bread-scented yeasty flavours will love this classy Cava; rich, full complex and toasty. Pale yellow colour. Fresh aroma and fruity and fresh on the palate with fine, pleasant bubbles that perfectly complement the wine’s structure.

Hailing from Penedès, the home of Cava, Bodegas Sumarroca makes excellent sparklers that belie the price. Generations of the Sumarroca family have devoted themselves to making Cava. Combining their passion for the land and tenacity in cultivating vines, their Cavas have bags of personality and character. Carlos Sumarroca, the owner, is one of Spain’s most important and awarded agriculturists and together with his wife Nuria bought the 15th century estate in 1982. The enterprising couple set about establishing one of the largest estate-only grown vineyard Cava producers in Spain. They practice sustainable farming, harvest at night and only use only free-run juice; selling off the pressed juice to other bodegas. Their winery is terraced along the hillside so that all movement of wine is gravity fed. The whites are blends of the traditional Cava varietals of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo with a small amount of Chardonnay, while their Rosados are made from Pinot Noir. Design driven with their packaging, their top wine Nuria is in a specially designed bottle that is unique to the winery.
