Production: 

Cava made with the utmost winemaking techniques and the greatest care. After a careful selection of the grapes from our vineyards, 1st fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a very low temperature between 12-14 ºC for several days. The coupage wine obtained undergoes 2nd fermentation in the bottle according to the traditional “Méthode Champenoise”. We employ a strain of yeast which increases mannoprotein content in the cava in order to achieve velvety and creamy mouth feel. The cava ages in the silence of our cellar on its lees.
