Characteristics of Vallformosa Origen Brut Nature
Vallformosa Origen Brut Nature is a cava produced from a coupage of varieties: Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada which are grown from the oldest vines in the cava region. The harvest is more manual than mechanical. Macabeo is picked at the beginning of September, Xarel·lo in the middle of September and, finally, Parellada in the first week of October. As for the production, the first fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 14-16 ºC. By contrast, the second fermentation is in the bottle by the Traditional Method. This cava ages for 12 months 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.
