D.O. Cava (Catalonia)
Bohigas Brut Nature Reserva is a cava produced by Caves Bohigas in Òdena (Barcelona), D.O. Cava.
Caves Bohigas is a family winery located on the Can Macià estate, in the municipality of Òdena. This estate has more than 200 hectares of forests, cereal fields and vineyards (over 35 hectares). The family also has 54 hectares of vineyards located in the area of Gelida, Penedés, an excellent location for the production of quiet wines and well adapted for red varieties.
The climate in the area is continental-Mediterranean, with highly fluctuating temperatures between day and night and very low rainfall. The soils are basically clay-calcareous. Caves Bohigas cultivates its vineyards under the influence of the Anoia River, respecting the land and seeking the maximum expression from the varieties that have adapted best. Resulting in low yields and high acidity, ideal for making high quality cava base wines.
Bohigas Brut Nature Reserva is a cava made with Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada grapes from old vineyards - some 50 years old - from the Can Macià estate.
Once the grape is harvested, it is pressed in the winery and the must undergoes an initial fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. The wine is aged on lees in the bottle for a minimum of 15 months.
