999 Brut Nature Reserva, Loxarel
Working with a small local team the Loxarel family have been making wine for many generations. The grapes used for this Rose Cava come from one of their highest sites here in the Penedès at Pla de Manlleu, 700m above sea level. This allows the grapes to keep their acidity which is needed for sparkling wine production. On the estate they follow a mixture of organic and biodynamic practises to tend to the vines.
Viticulture & Winemaking Organic practises. Hand-harvested, followed by 14 hours maceration. They then carry out fermentation in stainless steel and the traditional method sparkling. Triage is carried out at the end of January and the wine is then aged for 15months in bottle.
Grapes Pinot Noir, Xarel·lo, Vermell
Region Penedès, Spain
