Characteristics of Pere Mata L'Origen
Pere Mata L'Origen is a cava produced by the method that was used to make the first cava in Spain, however it is from the Macabeo and Xarel·lo varieties from the winery Mata i Coloma.
Pere Mata L'Origen is produced from vines that Mata i Coloma owns in the town of Sant Sadurní D'Anoia, an important viticulture area in Penedes. This cava is aged for more than three years in the barrel on its lees.
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.
