PostHeaderIcon II Mostra de cava valencià

Organized by PROAVA and seventeen Valencian wineries, this weekend was held in the city of Valencia, specifically in the heart of Barrio del Carmen, an example of the spectacular cellars are being made in the area. CR Cava recognized the town of Requena as a producer in the Apellation, and thanks to the good work of our winneries, we are getting wonderful cavas that have nothing to envy, not to traditional Catalonia, but the best French champagnes .

The basis for these wines are  Macabeo grapes is a well worked, with a touch of acidity recommended for this second fermentation, which together with mostly Chardonnay and one or more variety, we have cavas   clean and fresh, fruity, with fine bubbles and persistent and almost all made as Brut Nature, is staying in the caves and rhyme at least 14 months during the second fermentation and less than 3g. sugar.

Noted that, although yesterday evening, the time was bleak as to what weather we enjoy such as cellars Vera de Estenas, Chozas Carrascal, Pago de Tharsys, Vegalfaro, Torre Oria, Torroja, Vegamar, Bodegas Hispano-Suizas, Daniel J Belda, Antonio Arraez, Unión Vinícola del Este, Murviedro, Beso de Rechenna... and some more that I do not remember right now.

Difficult to highlight some of the cava tasted last night, they all had exceptional quality, some used, apart from the base wine Macabeo, Chardonnay barrel fermented, unfermented other, the proportions varied, some cava contained Parellada, others could not be called cava because grapes not supported by the CR Cava (case of Pago de Tharsys Blanc de negres, Bobal grape), finally each hold applies its expertise and has presented us some cava fresh and not hesitate to consume, not only for the dates approach, but at any time, as companions to a meal prepared with fish and white meats, appetizers with foie gras, eggs, vegetables, ... highly recommended this Christmas, as well appreciate the explosion of white fruit and citrus that most of them are going to produce the nose and mouth.

Here you have some photos that could not be of better quality due to rain when we were surprised by the afternoon and was in no way excuse for the influx of fans and friends continue to enjoy this product well we are doing in our community.
