Winemaker Notes

A pale, sparkling wine with lasting bubbles and a crisp finish. The bouquet is fruity and vigorous. Extremely refreshing: an ideal aperitif!

This sprightly cava is made with a blend of three grape varieties - Macabeo, Xarello, and Parellada - all carefully selected fron the Montsarra vineyard in the Penedes region of Spain.

Wine & Spirits
Bosky apple scents and flavors of clotted cream imply richness, but the wine cuts that with Spanish severity, finishing on the flavor of Marcona alamonds, briny and tight.

Montsarra, Penedes, Spain
Image of winery
Imported from Spain. Montsarra is produced in accordance with Mothode Champenoise Cava. This Cava is produced from three grape varieties from the Penedes: "Macabeo", "Xarel.lo" and "Parellada", carefully selected from our "Heredad". From the blend of these three wines, we obtain a base wine. By undergoing two fermentations, the base wine becomes the "Cava" Montsarra. After the addition of sugar and yeast, a slow and quiet fermentation takes place in the depth of our cellars. There, with a constant temperature and protected against light and vibrations, our Cavas acquire their intensely personal bouquet.

A superior source of white grapes for the production of Spain’s prized sparkling wine, Cava, the Penedes region is part of Catalunya and sits just south of Barcelona. Medio Penedès is the most productive source of the Cava grapes, Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada. Penedes also grows Garnacha and Tempranillo (here called Ull de Llebre in Catalan) for high quality reds and rosès.

Champagne & Sparkling

Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
