Winemaker's Notes:

50% Xarel-lo, 30% Macabeu, 20%Parellada - Light gold in color, with flavors of baked lemon, green apple, white flowers and very distinct mineral notes. Nice yeasty core and fine mousse this dry, crisp Cava which spends 18 months the lees.

About Bodegas Naveran:

Thirty years of carefully crafting Cava is a family legacy that began in 1901. Founded in 1985 by Swiss-born Michel Gilleron Parellada, the Caves Naveran winery owns 110 hectares (272 acres) of vines in the town of Torrelavit located in the Alt (high) Penedes subregion. 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.
