As the exclusive importer of Cava Mestres in the Netherlands, we can offer a Special Edition which is produced especially for Grandcru wines. The very high quality Reserva version is available in a Brut and a Brut Rosé and has had no less than 30+ months aging according to the méthode traditionnelle (or Méthode Champenoise). The MESTRES family has been documented in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia since 1312. The family has been associated with the wine world for 29 generations, making it one of the oldest (CAVA) winery in the world.
For the Mestres Reserva Brut, 2 natural corks are used to produce the Cava. This is what makes the Mestres so unique. You only see this (more expensive) process with the very exclusive champagne brands (normally, a crown stool is used first and only the natural cork is used for disgorgement). Since very long aging is used at Mestres, the porosity of the cork ensures a refinement of the wine.
The base wine is obtained at a controlled temperature of 14-15oC. The second fermentation in the bottle is completed in contact with the first 100% natural cork, in horizontal position and aging for no less than 30 months in the traditional bottle on its own yeasts in CAVA MESTRES. After the disgorgement (the manual process of removing dead yeast cells) the 2nd cork is placed. The Reserva Rosé is a Brut (five to six grams of sugar) Cava produced with Trepat (45%) Monastrell (30%) Pinot Noir (25%). All sparkling wines from Mestres are aged in bottle under cork. Mestres is a very traditional Cava producer and is compared in style by Parker to the "López de Heredia & Tondonia" among the Cavas.
In the glass, the Rosé Cava Brut has a bright pink light salmon color with very fine and elegant bubbles (perlage). In the nose intense and delicate aromas of red fruit with a floral touch and a slightly spicy background. On the palate, the Mestres Brut Rosé Reserva is very fresh, structured with a subtle finish that is complex and balanced. Pleasant and pleasant to drink. The advice of CAVAS MESTRES is not to drink the wine too cold. The recommended temperature is between 10-15 degrees, with a slightly higher temperature the flavors come into their own much better.
FACT: MESTRES has always printed the date of disgorgement on the label.
The MESTRES family has been documented in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia since 1312. The family has been associated with the wine world for 29 generations, making it one of the oldest (CAVA) winery in the world.
During the Christmas of 1928 , the first bottle of Cava MESTRES was released, which Josep Mestres Manobens produced with grapes from the 1925 vintage. From this date, the family specialized in the production of sparkling wines with a very long maturation made according to the champagne way, namely the traditional method. From that moment on they only focused on high quality and MESTRES grew into a reference and benchmark for top cavas. Josep Mestres Manobens is the one who started with a high-quality base wine to make a Cava by means of a 'champagne' (method 'champenoise') without adding a sugar liquid (this is used for the extra fermentation by most houses), which he called "Visol" ((WINE ON IT'S OWN). At Mestres they only work with wine and no additives. This is how the first Brut Nature was born and is registered in the Patent and Trademark office since 1948. Mestres are thus the Parents of Brut Nature Today, the 29th generation of the MESTRES family follows the path of their predecessors and maintains that restless and enterprising spirit that characterized the MESTRES family, a winery with seven centuries of history.
During all these years we have been able to follow tradition and respect a philosophy of unique elaboration, bringing the name MESTRES and the word CAVA to excellence. Mestres is the living history of Cava. Today, MESTRES cavas all have very high ratings.
