Gran Plus Ultra Pinot Noir

Tradition and innovation since 1551. Cava creators and forerunners in the use of new varietals. GPU Pinot Noir was the first cava made in Spain 100% with this prestigious variety, this cava is a tribute to that pioneering spirit. The exclusivity of this variety offers a daring, elegant brut with beautiful pale cherry tones. With the oldest expression of Pinot Noir in Spain, Codorníu has become a great specialist in this grape.

Winemaking

We start by planning the optimal time for harvesting, looking for a good level of coloring matter in the skin as well as considerable acidity and moderate alcoholic content. After destemming the grapes, we let it macerate, leaving the must in contact with the skins for about 3 or 4 hours. Subsequently, the must, already pink in color, is filtered and selected yeasts are added to start the fermentation at a temperature between 15º and 17ºC. After making the assembly, we bottle the wine together with the tirage liqueur (a mixture of sugar and selected yeasts). The bottles are lowered into the underground cellars (at a constant temperature of 17ºC) where a second fermentation takes place, which lasts about 8 weeks, followed by an aging period in contact with the yeast lees. In total, the wine will spend a minimum of 12 months in the winery, after which it is stirred (decanting of the bottles to facilitate agglutination and subsequent removal of sediments) and disgorging, at which time the deposited sediments are removed. after the second fermentation. Subsequently a quantity of expedition liquor is dosed that will determine its Brut dosage. Finally, the bottle is permanently covered with a cork stopper.

Viticulture

Pinot Noir grapes come from only 5 or 6 own vineyards. These vineyards are the oldest in Spain and are located in the region with a more continental climate in the D.O. Cava, in Lleida. This climate favors an optimal concentration of the fruit, more body and greater aromatic intensity. The soils are poor and shallow, which avoids excessive vigor in the vineyard. Controlled deficit irrigation (RDI) techniques are used applying water stress in certain stages to favor aromatic concentration. The cultivation systems follow the criteria of integrated production and are specially adapted to the production of sparkling wines. The Pinot Noir grape harvest takes place around mid-August and always takes place at night, in order to keep the grapes as fresh as possible and thus maintain their full aromas and avoid oxidation processes or spontaneous fermentations.

Sensory characteristics

Delicate medium-toned salmon pink color. Fine bubbles and delicate crown. The aromas of raspberry, blackberry and strawberry are joined by a light citrus aroma that enhances the previous ones and brings freshness. In the mouth, the notes of red fruits stand out, it is fresh, balanced and the bubbles favor the sensation of creaminess, enhanced by its aging in contact with yeasts. Pairing Excellent companion to consistent appetizers or fish rice. Perfect with salmon and raw oily fish (in sashimi, sushi, carpaccio or tartare) or grilled, since their acidity balances the fat content of these fish.
