Sumarroca Gran Reserva Brut Nature is a cava produced by the winery Sumarroca in D.O. Cava.

Sumarroca Gran Reserva Brut Nature is a traditional coupage of the varieties Maccabeu, Xarello, Parellada and Chardonnay.
The grapes come from the vineyards of the farms Sumarroca and Sabartés. The soils of the first farm are calcareous, gravely and poor in organic matter. As for the farm Sabartés, located much further south of Penedès, has clayey and loamy soils. Its vineyards are also influenced by the ocean breeze thanks to the proximity of the sea.
As for the production, each variety is vinified separately. After a static settling process of 24 hours, the wine goes through a fermentation of 18 days at 14ºC.
Finally, the ageing takes place in stacks for 36 months.
