TRUE LUXURY FOR THE SENSES
Sophisticated, unique, gastronomic... The cava for those seeking new experiences.
The four varieties which go into Maria del Mar are vinified separately.
The grapes are pressed very gently in order to obtain the best free run juice.
The 15% of Xarel.lo which goes into the blend, is fermented and barrel-aged for 5 months during which time bâtonnage is carried out. This endows the cava with structure and lovely toffee, toast and smoky aromas.
After blending, careful clarification and filtration are carried out to preserve all the qualities of the still wine.
The second fermentation takes place in the bottle respecting the traditional method.
Appearance: Intense amber hue with warm golden tints. The steady string of beads forms a magnificent crown.
On the nose: The careful blend of four grape varieties and barrel fermentation for the Xarel.lo result in a rich, full-bodied cava, with layers of intense aromas of toast, spices and ripe fruit, creating unique sensations illustrating the cava’s sophistication.
On the palate: Creamy and structured, with smoky notes. The aftertaste is well defined, complex, rich, harmonious and full.

The same landscape can be painted countless times. A melody can be played over and over. A cava may be produced using different processes.
