Perelada, Stars Brut Reserva, DO Cava
Pale yellow colour with greenish hints. Bright and clean. Its generous stream of fine bubbles forms a perfect crown. On the nose it is clean, with fruity notes and marked ageing notes. Dry, smooth and complex in the mouth, it has superb balance.
Fruit comes from an old vineyard in the DO Cava region in Penedès that is sited on clay soil with a high calcium content…slightly alkaline.
A temperature controlled fermentation of the first must pressing, followed by secondary fermentation in bottle. 15 months lees ageing in bottle before disgorging.
