2016 Equipo Navazos Colet Extra Brut
The joint venture with Equipo Navazos from Jerez, where the sparkling wines of Sergi Colet from the Penedes are blended with the spirit of sherry through a small dosage of paolo cortado. Colet Navazos Extra Brut Reserve is a sparkling Penedés Cava prepared according to the traditional method (champenoise) with the second fermentation in the bottle. The bottles are topped up at Palo Cortado and Amontillado from the Jerez, when they are untouched: they call it an oxidative sparkling. It has an unusual nose with aromas of toasted nuts and raisins and some smoky, meaty notes. The palate has crisp flavors with a sous-like note of tasty broth and clean, balanced acidity with lots of little bubbles bursting in your mouth.
The COLET-NAVAZOS Extra Brut has had a long maturation of 30 months. It is absolutely dry, with virtually zero residual sugars. The wine has a nice clean smell, slightly oxidative, apple, almond and a fresh high acidity. The base wine comes from the Chardonnay with a southern contribution of Manzanilla Pasada and Manzanilla and this makes the Cava unique, subtle with a very personal character.
