Characteristics Anna de Codorniu Brut Nature
Anna de Codorníu Brut Nature is a cava produced by the Codorníu winery, made mostly with the Chardonnay variety and without the addition of sugars.
Anna de Codorníu Brut Nature is one of the flagship products of this winery located in the Penedès region and arose as a tribute to the last heiress who bore the surname Codorníu. A winery that has over 500 years of history devoted to producing cavas and wines, and that currently owns more than 3,000 hectares of vineyards.
Anna de Codorníu Brut Nature is the first cava that came onto the market with Chardonnay in its blend - a white variety that is internationally recognised for its champagnes and noted for its good level of acidity, freshness and floral aromas. Thanks to the introduction of this variety, which is French in origin, together with the traditional varieties with which cava is made: Parellada, Xarel·lo and Macabeo, a versatile, delicate product is obtained, with pleasant fruity aromas.
Once the grapes for Anna de Codorníu Brut Nature are ripe they are harvested at night with the aim of maintaining the intrinsic properties of the fruit and avoiding oxidation and fermentation processes. After de-stemming and pressing, the yeasts are added to the must to ferment, the blending is performed, the wine is bottled with the tirage liqueur and stored in the cava at a constant temperature of 17ºC. There it will undergo a second fermentation with an ageing period of 12 months. After this time, the sediments deposited are removed by riddling and disgorging. Liqueur d’expedition is then added and the bottle is capped with a cork stopper.
Anna de Codorníu Brut Nature is a balanced, lively and very feminine cava. Served at a temperature of between 5 and 8ºC you will enjoy the freshness of the variety without losing the creaminess of the ageing.
