Caballo Oscuro Cava Brut Nature
Discover the exquisite blend of tradition and contemporary tastes with Caballo Oscuro Cava Brut Nature. Originating from the Penedès region of Spain, this Cava offers a distinct character, crafted through traditional bottle fermentation while seamlessly aligning with modern palates.
The Craftsmanship of Cava:
Caballo Oscuro Cava is meticulously crafted using three distinct grape varieties: Macabeo, Xarel·lo, and Parellada.
- Macabeo: Lends a crisp, acidic framework.
- Xarel·lo: Contributes body and fullness.
- Parellada: Infuses a captivating fruit personality.
These carefully chosen grapes are harmoniously blended to undergo a secondary fermentation in the bottle, aging for a minimum of 9 months. Over time, the decomposing yeasts, or "lees", enrich the wine with nuanced flavors.
- Harvest: The grapes are delicately handpicked and transported in small crates to the winery.
- Fermentation: Each grape variety is fermented at 16-18ºC to create the base wine. The blend is then crafted, complemented with yeast and sugar, and bottled with a crown cap.
- Aging: The second fermentation unfolds in an underground cellar, followed by 12 months of aging on the lees.
- Finishing: The bottles are degorged to remove yeasts, and topped up with the same wine without any additional sugar.
