Cavas Mas Codina. A family tradition since 1681

Recently, with the motivation Wine Tour has stirred by kicking off with the release of the annual 50 Great Cavas 2014, we have the opportunity to witness first-hand the good work at Cavas Mas Codina. Without a doubt, this winery is not very well known to the public, but we were so impressed by their honesty, good work and excellent wines.

Mas Codina is situated in a small town in Puigdàlver, in the Catalan region of Alt Penedés. The farm has 40 hectares of vineyards and is dedicated to the production of cavas and still wine. They been in progress from generation to generation since 1681, the year Mas was constructed.

However, it was not until 1985 that the farm first began to bottle the wines and cavas for release onto the market.

Mas Codina produces sparkling wine from Xarel·lo, Macabeo, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varieties that are grown from vines more than 30 years old. All the varieties are harvested separately, leading to subsequent tasting sessions by oenologists in the winery, where they later decide the coupages and distinguish each of their products.

This edition of 50 Great Cavas 2014 awards excellent scores to the three sparkling wines from the winery, appreciating the great quality-price ratio for Mas Codina cavas:

Mas Codina Brut Nature Reserva 2010. 93 points for the Brut Nature Reserva from this winery. A coupage of four varieties, aged for 27 months in the cellar which gives the cava aromas of green apple, apricots and dry fruits.

Mas Codina Brut Reserva 2010. Also has 93 points for the Reserva from this winery. A Cava with fine bubbles that gives it intense white fruit aromas and a magnificent balance between acidity and sweetness.

Mas Codina Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2008. The Gran Reserva from the Mas Codina winery gained 92 points in the annual 50 Great Cavas 2014. A perfect balance between fruit, roasted notes and minerality and it is aged for 40 months in the darkness of the cellar.

Cavas of the highest level, a high degree of enjoyment and a good price. Do not miss out!
