Some seriously delicious sparkling wine at an amazing price!
Varietal: Macabeo, Parellada, Chardonnay, and Xarel-lo
Tasting Notes: Very pale brilliant yellow with regular lines of bubbles rising to form a crown. Very pleasant initial sensation with fine, light aromas and secondary aromas redolent of aging in the bottle with hints of fruits, floral shades, and spices. Sits exquisitely on the palate, fully and creamy, yet dry and fresh at the same time, with well-balanced acidity and an elegant, fruity, and long finish. Well balanced with a pleasant, long finish.
Pairing: Cavas are very versatile as an aperitif before the meal and, of course, to enjoy during the meal. In addition to all manner of fried foods (try with fried smelts or calamari!), this Naveran Brut Nature will pair with soft cheeses, fresh fruit, white meats (pork and chicken), and even richly flavored red meats. This Cava is also great for sipping on its own.
Bodegas Naveran is a premium Cava producer that uses estate-grown organic grapes. The Naveran family's 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.
What makes this wine unique? Bodegas Naveran is 100% estate-owned and their vineyards are organically grown for higher quality control. Also, old vines result in smaller yields which increase concentration and grape quality. This winery also has its very own bottling production for all of its vintage cavas. Did you know 85% of the cavas made by Naveran are sold in France, the birthplace and home of Champagne?
