The grapes come from the vineyards owned by the winery in the municipality of Grávalos, south of Monte Yerga in the foothills of the Iberian Cordillera at an altitude between 700 – 800 meters above sea level. A very high area in which fresh wines are obtained with low alcohol content, with very fine and elegant aromas. The Viura variety is harvested in the first two weeks of October. The harvest is done by hand, selecting the grapes, avoiding the arrival at the press of any deteriorated grapes or those that do not meet the quality required to make our cavas. The must flower obtained with a soft pressing will be used to make our cavas. The must will carry out the first fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature of over 14ºC. At the beginning of spring, once the wine is clean, the second fermentation will take place inside the bottle and the wine will be aged for at least 36 months.
Tasting Notes Benito Escudero Brut
Lemon yellow colour with steely reflections. Fine bubble that forms a small rosary of slow evolution. Pleasant in the mouth with slight acidity and a very well integrated bubble. Apple aftertaste.
