ABOUT THIS WINE

The Pinot Noir and Parellada grapes are harvested separately and gently pressed with a short maceration to avoid increasing the colour. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at very low temperatures. Once the base wine has finished fermentation, it is stabilised and filtered before being put into the tirage. Second fermentation takes place in the bottle with a minimum of 12 months of ageing.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

Bodegas Naveran is a premium Cava producer that uses estate-grown organic grapes. The Naveran family legacy began in 1901 and today, their estate owns 110 hectares (272 acres) of vines in the town of Torrelavit located in the Alt (high) Penedès subregion in northeastern Spain. Despite the fact that Cava is Spain’s largest volume wine export to the U.S., Cavas are made utilizing the same methods used in Champagne and have remained Spain’s best-kept secret for quality and value in wine. Unlike the majority of the big Cava houses that purchase most of their grapes, Naveran makes handcrafted Cavas from their own vineyards.

Proprietor Michel Gilleron Parellada's goal with this Cava is to show the purity, youth and bright flavor characters of this special place. Xarello (10%) and Chardonnay (20%) contribute body, Macabeo (40%) gives aromatic intensity and Parellada (30%) lends acidity to the wine. The organically grown (non-certified) vines were planted between the course of 1970 to 1995 and the soil is tended in clay and limestone soil at 252 m (827 ft) elevation. The Naveran estate's higher elevation allows the grapes to retain more natural acidity, which results in wines that are zesty, fresh and have expressive aromas. Naveran Brut Nature spends 18 months on lees after fermentation in the bottle to achieve greater depth, complexity, and long-lasting bubbles.
