The cava of the Gods

I. VARIETALS: 100% Chardonnay.

II. ALCOHOL: 12% 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 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 first fermentation takes place in stainless steel at low temperature at 14ºC. At the beginning of spring, once the wine is clean, the 2nd fermentation takes place inside the bottle and the 48 months aging process begins.

V. TASTING: Golden straw yellow. Wonderful effervescence, abundant and fine bubble with regular shedding, rosaries and a good crown. Aromas of ripe fruit (apple, peach), dry nuts and honey. Tasty, powerful, very dry, with good acidity providing a special freshness. Persistente en boca y con sabor final a miel. Persistent. Retro- nasal route clean, honey.

VI. FOOD MATCH: Hot and cold Starters. Oysters. Game and fresh foie gras. Goes well with almost every type of dishes. Could accompany during the whole meal.
