D.O. Cava (Catalonia)
Anna de Codorníu Brut is a cava produced by the Codorníu winery, mostly with the Chardonnay variety and with Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada.
Anna de Codorníu Brut is one of the flagship products of this winery located in the Penedès region and named as a tribute to the last heiress who had the surname Codorníu. Today, after more than 500 years of working, this winery has more than 3,000 hectares of vineyards growing the grapes used to make their cavas and other productions.
Anna de Codorníu Brut is the first cava that came onto the market with Chardonnay in the coupage. A white variety that is known around the world for its champagnes and noted for its good level of acidity, freshness and floral aromas. Thanks to the introduction of this French variety together with the traditional varieties used to make cava: Parellada, Xarel·lo and Macabeo, a versatile, delicate product with pleasant fruity aromas is achieved.
Once the Anna de Codorníu Brut grapes are ripe they are harvested at night with the aim of maintaining the intrinsic properties of the fruit and avoiding oxidation and fermentation processes. After destemming and pressing, the yeasts are added to the must to ferment, the blend is created, the wine is bottled with the expedition liqueur and stored in the cave at a constant temperature of 17ºC. There it will undergo a second fermentation with an aging period of 12 months. After this time, the sediments deposited are removed by riddling and disgorging.
Anna de Codorníu Brut is a balanced, lively and very feminine cava. Served at a temperature of between 5 and 8ºC you can enjoy the freshness of the variety without losing the creaminess of the aging.
