Characteristics of Perelada Brut Rosé
Perelada Brut Rosé is a cava produced by the winery Castillo de Perelada in Perelada (Girona), D.O. Cava.
The winery Castillo de Perelada was founded in 1976, although the castle was acquired by the family in 1923. With the same style, it gathers a winemaking tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages.
Castillo de Perelada is a large and important winery. It produces a wide and complete range of wines, so its production facilities are an example of state-of-the-art winery technology. However, a large part of its work philosophy lies within the land, in the vineyards and in the vines. Therefore, Perelada has several plots of vineyards located in different areas, on different soils and microclimates within D.O. Empordà.
Currently, the winery exports to more than 56 countries, and produced in several denominations of origin in the Spanish territory.
Perelada Brut Rosé is a cava made from RedGrenache, Pinot Noir and Trepat, from vineyards under D.O. Cava.
Once the grapes are harvested and taken to the winery, they go through a soft maceration with their skins. Then, they fermented in stainless steel deposits, each variety separately. After the fermentation they carry out the coupage, and the wine is bottled for its second fermentation in the bottle. Here it will rest for a minimum of 12 months. After this time, they perform the disgorgement, and then they add the liqueur d'expédition.
Perelada Brut Rosé is a fruity, light and fresh cava. The ripe red fruits stand out,with light notes from its ageing. An ideal treat for the aperitif.
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.
Historically, the great economic engine of D.O. Empordà has been and still is Perelada. Many other wineries have looked up to them. Although it produces a wide range of wines, from the more linear and competitive ones to the those that are more exclusive, such as Finca Garbet, the Finca Malaveïna or the Ex Ex collection, among others, it also offers wines made with native varieties, such as the Red and White Grenache, Samsó, etc. However, more than the numerical weight of the wine variety, we must point out the effort made by this winery to halt the progressive decline suffered by the area's image, as a land of bulk wines, where the few bottled wines were oxidised, and others were not too marketable. It is safe to say that Perelada lead the way and marked the new path of the Empordà wines.
