Raimat Lo Fred de Ponent
Our cavas are made with grapes from our own vineyards, the result of the experience of more than 100 years innovating and that make us today one of the most important references in sustainable viticulture. Discover in this bottle the meaning of our existence, which is none other than sharing with you all our knowledge to help you discover more of this pleasure that is cava.
The harvest took place at dawn, in early August, taking advantage of the cool temperature and thus avoiding oxidation. We gently press the grapes and ferment in stainless steel tanks to maintain the fruit aromas, and then the malolactic fermentation is completed. After a minimum aging of 15 months at a constant temperature between the thick walls of our cellars, this reserve cava will remain vibrant for another three or four years.
The grapes for this cava come from 25-year-old vines, located in the westernmost part of the municipality, in one of the coldest estates in Raimat, where there is a microclimate that can be two degrees less than in the easternmost area. of the vineyards. The soils in this area are heavier, but shallow, with a silty-loam texture, which makes them cooler. These characteristics, together with a management of the vegetation without trellis to favor the shade of the grapes, are especially suitable for the elaboration of a cava with certain complexity and resistance to aging. The result is a Xarel·lo with a citric profile with herbaceous aromas and very good acidity. After a dry winter and spring, May was alarmingly warm. June followed with very high temperatures and July was scorching. The harvest was early and with impeccable health, although with less grapes. The first fermentations offered very fresh and clean white wines.
