2015 Cava Pere Ventura Gran Vintage Cava de Paraje Brut
The Pere Ventura Gran Vintage Cava de Paraje Gran Reserva Brut is the top model of Pere Ventura. The 2015 is a Gran Reserva that has matured for 5 years and is only made in the beautiful years. 2529 bottles were made of this 2015 and are in a beautiful luxury bottle and wine box.
Sparkling golden yellow color with a hint of amber. In the nose intense aromas of grapefruit, peach, apple, fresh almonds and brioche. The palate has an abundant fine mousse with notes of citrus fruits, fresh ripe apricots, roasted apple and spices, which are accompanied by a silky smooth aftertaste with beautiful nervous acids.
At the beginning of September, the three grape varieties are harvested individually by hand. The grapes are then destemmed and the pulp cooled to 14°C and then pneumatically pressed very gently, after which a temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation with wild (grape-specific) yeasts takes place in stainless steel tanks at 18°C. After several months after the harvest, the young wine is assembled, clarified and sugar and yeast are added, bottled and sealed with a crown cap. During the next fermentation, carbon dioxide is created (prise de mousse) and only after a maturing period on the groin of at least 9 months, the yeast sediment is removed (dégorgement). After this, up to a maximum of 12 grams of sugar (dosage) is added to meet the taste indication "Brut". Pere Ventura's Cava Brut Vintage has had a maturation period "sur lattes" of at least 48 months and often more.
