CAVA traditional 750 ML.
Elaboration and Aging : We use two corks for every bottle to make our cava. The base wine is obtained at a controlled temperature of 14-15 ºC (57 -59 Fahrenheit). The second fermentation in bottle is completed in contact with the first 100% natural cork, in
horizontal position in “rima” with over 20 months of aging in the traditional bottle on its lees in CAVA MESTRES. For longer aged cavas (over 30 months) bottles are moved from the “rima” resting position to favour the yeast autolysis process greatly improving structure and complexity. Finally after disgorging (manual process of dead yeast cell removal, we place the second cork with its accompanying plaque into the bottle. MESTRES
always states the disgorging date on the label.
