Biutiful Cava Brut Rose NV

Region: Cava D.O.
Winery: ISAAC FERNANDEZ SELECCIÓN

Grapes: 100% Garnacha
Color: Sparkling

The Biutiful Cavas are produced at a winery created in 2007 utilizing the latest technology for the production of Cava. The vineyards are based in Requena; a region with a grape growing history dating back to the 7th century BCE. The region lies about 70 km West of the Mediterranean Sea and combines Mediterranean and Continental climatic influences. The winters are long and cold, getting down to near 0F. The summers are quite short punctuated by long, hot days with a cooling easterly wind in the afternoons/evenings. The elevation of the vineyards is between 700 and 900 meters and they grow Macabeo, Chardonnay and Garnacha.

The grapes for this wine were harvested from the Western portion of Requena, from vineyards with Southeastern exposure which helps to maintain floral aromas. Grapes were destemmed and saw a few hours of skin contact prior to pressing. The wine was aged on lees for a minimum of 15 months without exposure to light or movement to incorporate great complexity, a round mouthfeel and fine bubbles. Residual Sugar: 9.1g/L

Vinous 90 (aged on its lees for 18 months; Lot #619457) Brilliant pink. Intense red berry and tangerine scents show very good clarity and a suave floral note that builds in the glass. Silky, seamless and broad on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and blood orange flavors underscored by a smoky mineral nuance. Finishes sappy and quite long, featuring echoing red fruit character and a touch of candied rose. I really like the interplay of power and finesse here.

The Wine Enthusiast 87 Smoky stonefruit aromas lead to a fresh and zesty feeling palate that hits firmly with plum, raspberry and citrus flavors. The finish on this rosé Cava is solid but gaseous, with red-fruit and citrus flavors to spare.

Wine & Spirits Magazine NA With its red fruit and sweet spice, this is a soft, refreshing Cava to serve with smoked salmon.

International Wine Review 89 If you like the fresh strawberry flavors of the Grenache grape, you’ll love this sparkler. It shows beautiful (biutiful) Grenache aromas and flavors and a creamy, soft mousse. The wine has enough ripe fruit to make it a good pairing for the Thanksgiving meal. Aged on the lees for 9 months. 9.1 g/l RS.
