Characteristics of Palau Solà Brut Nature
Palau Solà Brut Nature is a cava produced by Capità Vidal with traditional varieties from Penedés. This cava is a coupage of Macabeo (35%), Xarel·lo (40%) and Parellada (25%). The varieties are vinified separately. The aging takes place for a minimum of 12 months in the darkness of the cave underneath the winery at a constant temperature and humidity. When the aging finishes, the bottles are placed on racks where and the clarification is done manually, and each bottle receives one eighth of a turn every day. The sediments are deposited on the neck end of the bottle which are removed with disgorgement. In this case, the cava does not have added liqueur d'expédition.
Cava was born under the constant shadow of its French counterpart, Champagne. However, produced over 1,200km away and a gap of over 100 years, Cava was always going to be a completely different product, even if produced using the same method and and sometimes with the same varieties. Firstly the climate and soil have a profound impact on the yields, while the plant strains that thrive here and completely different to those in the Champagne region. Fortunately, as more winemakers are becoming convinced of this, they are producing Cavas with their own personality, showing off the art of the second fermentation in the bottle like no other wine region in the world.
