3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Vallformosa was established in 1865 and is managed by the 5th generation of the Domenech family. Each generation has added to the success of the company - the first and second generation farmed the land, the third introduced bottling; and the fourth generation developed the cava method. The vineyards in Penedes are located between the Mediterranean Sea and the Catalan coastal mountain range and are planted to traditional white varieties Parellada, Xarel-lo and Macebeo as well as red varietals Tempranillo, Garancha, Samso and Monastrell. In total, 981 acres of vineyards are planted in Penedes and Rioja. The grapes are harvested by hand and by machine. Vallformosa Cava is produced using the traditional method and the wine is aged for 12-15 months on its lees. The Domenech family and Vallformosa are actively involved with cancer research through the Catalan Oncology Institution Foundation.

Lime, green apple and yeast notes define the nose. This is plump and fleshy in feel, with peach, nectarine and apple flavors. That’s also how the finish rolls out. All in all, this is juicy, straightforward and well constituted.

Wine maker notes
The grapes are harvested by hand from the winery’s oldest estate vineyards, with the various varietals being picked from the first to the third week of September. The wine undergoes “Traditional Method” fermentation, the first taking place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 57°-60°F (14-16°C) and the second occurs in the bottle. It is aged an average of 12 months on lees prior to release.

Technical notes
(40% Xarel-lo/30% Macabeo/30% Parallada).

Food pairing
This “Method Traditional” Cava is best enjoyed chilled on its own as an aperitif or with most foods.
