Sombra Botella Cava Dioro Baco Extra Brut Vendimia Seleccionada


The cava of the Gods

I. VARIETALS: 60% Chardonnay, 40% Viura.

II. ALCOHOL: 12,5% Vol.

III. VINEYARDS AND HARVEST: The grapes come from the property owned vineyards located in Grávalos, on the southern slopes side of Mount Yerga at the foothills of the “Cordillera Ibérica” at an altitude of between 700 and 800 meters. A very high located area where you obtain fresh wines with little graduation, with very fine and elegant aromas. The Chardonnay grape is harvested during the second or third week of October. The Viura grape in the first two weeks of October. The collection of the grapes is done manually. By selecting the grapes, we avoid deteriorated grapes from reaching the press and the quality required to elaborate our Cavas is maintained.

IV. ELABORATION: Only the run juice, obtained after a mild pressing, will be destined for the elaboration of “Dioro Baco”. The run juice will go through the first fermentation in 225 Liter fine American oak barrels. Once fermented, the must remains in contact with the lees until mid-March with a daily batonnage. In the later stadium the batonnage is done more sparsely. Bottling will take place at the end of April and the aging process, of at least 48 months, begins.

V. TASTING: Straw yellow, greenish and gold. Fine bubbles, forms rosaries and a good crown. Aromas of ripe fruit, smoky, toast and vanilla from the cask. Well homogeneous strong and flavorful with a soft end point of acidity that makes it very pleasant.

VI. FOOD MATCH: Hot and cold starters, oysters, game, fresh foie-gras. Could accompany during the whole meal.
