D.O. Cava (Catalonia)
Vallformosa Origen Brut Rosado is a rosé brut cava from the D.O Cava produced by the winery Vallformosa. It is a blend of 2 grape varieties: Grenache and Monatrell.
The climate in D.O Cava is ideal for growing grapes, since the presence of the Mediterranean Sea results in warm and mild weather.
The harvest of the grapes takes place manually and mechanically. Each variety of grape is harvested at the point of their optimal ripeness.
At the winery, the harvested grapes initially ferment in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 14 to 16º.The second fermentation takes place in the bottle, following traditional methods.
Before being disgorged, the final process in production, Vallformosa Origen Brut Rosado rests on it’s lees for one whole year.
