Characteristics of Vallformosa Col·lecció Brut Reserva
Vallformosa Col.lecció Brut Reserva is a cava from the D.O Cava produced by the winery Vallformosa. This cava is a blend of 4 grape varieties: Macabeo, Xarel.lo, Parellada and Chardonnay.
The grapes used by Vallformosa Col.lecció Brut Reserva come from a selection of the best vineyards owned by the winery. The harvest and transport of the grapes to the winery is carried out using traditional methods.
The first fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature between 14-16º. Vallformosa Col.lecció Brut Reserva then undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle following the traditional method. Finally, this cava is aged for 24 months in the bottle on its lees.
Vallformosa takes its name from the valley where it is situated. The cavas that have been and are being created all come from the estates owned by the family.
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.
