MESTRES CLOS NOSTRE SENYOR 2004
New gold in color with fine and discreet bubbles. Deep and elegant aromatically: fresh flower notes wrapped in creamy undertones of pastry and liquor notes. On the palate it is dry, lively and complex. One discovers aromatic plants, subtle toast notes, confit, cinnamon and fine pastry from the autolysis process. Lively balance and complexity makes this cava suitable for pairing with many different types of dishes.

Elaboration and Aging :
We use two corks for every bottle to make our cava. The base wine is fermented and aged in chestnut barriques in lees for 10 months. The second fermentation in bottle is completed in contact with the first 100% natural cork, in horizontal position in “rima” with over 75 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.
