Casa Rojo Moltó Negre Cava Brut D.O Cava 2019
In Conca de Barberá (DO Cava), Casa Rojo's four Trepat vineyards with granite and sand soils produce elegant, fine and flirtatious Cava. The team samples the grapes first before harvesting the berries manually when they reach optimum ripeness. The grapes then macerate on skins for 2 hours to extract maximum aromatic precursors of the grape variety. Light and soft pressing to obtain the must, which makes the base wine. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a regulated temperature of 16°C. Second fermentation in bottle for a minimum of 12 months in cellar. The wine then goes through final disgorging and corking before shipment.
Pale pink colour with flashes of bright gold. Delicate and fine bubbles that shed persistently. The intense nose is a duel of citrus and red berries, with lemon and strawberry racing to dominate. There's a hint of caramel brioche sweetness melded into the fruit-forward aromas. Tasty entrance with a fruity palate, dedicated creaminess, and a good acidity that closes in a fresh and persistent finish.
Limited production of 16,000 bottles.
