Clos Mont-blanc Cava Brut PremiumMade from blending the best Macabeu and Parellada grapes, this premium quality Spanish Cava is aged to perfection. Clos Montblanc's winemaker, Josep Vadri has this to say about his craft, "If any philosophy exists in the world of wine, it's acting when the moment is right. Not too early, not too late: all in its own time". In this case, that time is between 12 and 18 months in bottle, resulting in a fresh and intense finish with yeasty and nutty hints. This is a classic Cava, yellow with green highlights and fine bubbles in the glass, milky notes with delicate, white fruit finish (apple, pear) in the mouth, leaving a full and lingering pleasant aftertaste. The Clos Montblanc family winery, with over five generations of vine-growing experience, is nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty and heritage, Conca de Barbera, to the south of Barcelona. Clos Montblanc use carefully selected grapes, grown on their 50 hectare sustainably famed vineyard. 100% of the water they use in their growing and processing is rainwater. Their wines reflect both the history of their surroundings, and the forward-thinking of modern Catalonia.This is a quintessential Cava to enjoy on any occasion.
