A pale, sparkling wine with lasting bubbles and a crisp finish. The bouquet is fruity and vigorous. Extremely refreshing: an ideal aperitif! This sprightly cava is made with a blend of three grape varieties.
A medieval Catalan farmhouse in the town of Torroelles de Foix is the origin of Heredad Montsarra, a well-known vineyard in Alt Penedes. In 1992, Heredad Montsarra became part of Bardinet, S.A. Montsarra Cava is made from a careful blend of native grapes. Contributing strength and quality, Macabeo makes up 60 to 70 percent of the blend; Xarello, which comprises 15 to 20 percent, adds substance and structure; and Parellada, at 15 to 20 percent, supplies the deep aroma. Once blended, the cava receives a second fermentation in the cellars, where the temperature is constant and the wine is protected against light and vibration. Monstarra Cava is typically cellared for a minimum of 1 1/2 to 2 years.
