- Straw hue with golden highlights.
- The nose is intense with clear notes of maturity under a constant veil of freshness. Hints of baked apple, sweet pears, ripe citrus & grapefruit peel. Faded flowers and a herbal backdrop reminiscent of fennel and rosemary. The ageing notes run through a gamut of aromas which includes hazelnuts, pastries, toast, brioche and toffee. The cava becomes more and more expressive as it opens up in the glass.
- On the palate, it is powerful on entry with great structure. The carbon dioxide is fine and creamy. The wine is loaded with candied fruit balanced by the notes from aging. The balsamic aromas come through again. Lively, refreshing finish on the palate. The aftertaste is never-ending. This is very much a cava for enjoying with good food.
