The two most powerful warriors, according to the famous Russian writer Leon Tolstoy, are patience and time. These two attributes are what inspire the cavas of very long aging of MESTRES, the cavas with longer ageings on the market.
The second fermentations in the bottle are carried out, mostly, with wines fermented and aged in barriques. At MESTRES all the cavas are aged with a natural cork stopper, following an ancestral tradition, because the cork is the best guardian of our very long-aged cavas.
MESTRES is fully committed to the traditional white native varieties, the most ingrained in our country. Our old vineyards were planted between 40 and 65 years ago. The harvest, always of low yields, is manual and in boxes to preserve the maximum quality of the grapes.
The disgorging of all the bottles is done at cellar temperature by hand. Bottle by bottle.
The MESTRES long-aged cavas are removed to favor the yeast autolysis process, achieving an improvement in the structure and complexity of our "wines of Cava".
