The Penedes region lies settled between the luminous Mediterranean
coast and the cool heights of the mountain ranges along the coast of Catalonia between Barcelona and Tarragona provinces, in the surroundings of Sant Sadurni D'Anoia.
Approximately 472 acres of vineyards are owned by Vins El Cep. There are five different vineyards in Superior Penedes, the highest region in Penedes. It is predominately calcareous soil. 60% of the vineyards are pruned as a bilateral cordon. The rest are spur-pruned and head-trained (vaso system).
For this cava, only the first press of the grapes is used (about 50% of selected harvest); there are 10.5 grams of sugar used in the final dosage. The wine spends 3.5 years in the bottle before release.
Blend: 35% Macabeo, 30% Xarel-lo, 20% Parellada, 15% Chardonnay
