Golden with intense gold tones.
Subtle at first, after 12 years ageing it needs a moment or two to wake up! Yellow fruit which ranges from cool tones to mature notes. Candied fruit, plums, apples and pears.
Perfumed tones (patchouli, incense), balsamic notes (eucalyptus, rosemary, bay leaf, fennel). The bakery type notes turn into finely roasted aromas (nuts, toffee, cocoa). Some earthy, saline aromas with a trace of iodine in the background.
Fresh on entry, surprisingly fine carbon dioxide, creamy but with a constant lively acidity. A metallic note adds to the fresh finish with nice, sustained acidity.
This cava will be enjoyed with the most exquisite dishes. It is good with all types of food and recipes and is an ideal accompaniment throughout an entire “tasting menu”. But of course, good company and great occasions are what suit it best.
