Characteristics of Alta Alella Mirgin Gran Reserva

Alta Alella Mirgin Gran Reserva is an ecological DO Cava sparkling wine made by Alta Alella using the Pansa Blanca, Macabeu and Parellada varieties in the Catalan town of Alella (Barcelona).

Alta Alella Mirgin is a project run by the Pujol-Busquets family in the Serralada de Marina Natural Park, in the province of Barcelona. Since starting out in 1991, the team has worked to recover old vines and plant new ones of local traditional varieties. Using organic farming principles to work their 43 hectares of vineyards since 2017, they have been awarded the status of “Vallcirera Classified Area” and they are the first in the DO Cava to produce cava without sulphur.

Lying 2 kilometres from the Mediterranean Sea, the Alta Alella Mirgin Gran Reserva vines are planted in sandy loam soils at an altitude of 150-300 metres above sea level. The team use certified organic farming and the harvest is carried out manually in small boxes at the optimum point of ripeness for each variety.

After gently pressing the grapes to extract the free-run juice, each of the varieties used to make Alta Alella Mirgin Gran Reserva ferment separately. Then there is a second bottle fermentation of the traditional Champenoise method, and then a minimum of 30 months aging. It is disgorged before being released for sale, with the disgorgement date noted on the label.

Alta Alella Mirgin Gran Reserva is a dream come true for a family committed to organic, environmentally-friendly viticulture. The result of this work is a fresh, expressive and 100% Mediterranean cava.

Designation of Origin D.O. Cava

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.
