D.O. Cava (Catalonia)
Mas Codina Brut Nature Reserva is a cava from the D.O Cava produced by the winery Mas Codina. This is a blend of Xarel·lo, Macabeo, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Mas Codina Brut Nature Reserva is born out vines located in the Alt Penedès between 20-40 years old, planted in clayey soils.
The harvest is completed by hand, all the grapes originate from the same vineyard. Once at the winery, the must is extracted by a series of pneumatic presses at a pressure inferior to 0.2 psi.
Mas Codina Brut Nature Reserva is fermented alcoholically with yeast for 20 days at a temperature of 17ºC in stainless steel vats.
After the must rests with its lees during the winter, Mas Codina Brut Nature Reserva begins a second alcoholic fermentation process with special selected yeasts.
The last stage before being bottled, Mas Codina Brut Nature Reserva rests for a further 26 months in the cellar at 16ºC.
Although, Mas Codina wasn´t established until 1985, the current winery was constructed in 1681. Since then, all the managers of the estate have always dedicated their time to the proper cultivation of the vines.
