Alta Alella Mirgin Laieta Opus Brut Nature 2013
Alta Alella Mirgin Laieta Opus Brut Nature 2013 is a Cava from Catalonia, 2km from the Mediterranean and 18km from Barcelona. It comes in an impressive black bottle and is packaged in its own gift box, all in all creating a ready-made present which should make any lucky recipient very happy.
Made from organic grapes of Vallcirera Paraje: Pansa Blanca & Chardonnay. The fermentation of the Chardonnay takes place in second-year French oak barrels, while the Pansa Blanca is fermented in stainless steel tanks. After four months, the blend is made through the traditional method and then there is a minimum ageing of 36 months. It is released on the market just after being disgorged.
Alta Alella Mirgin Laieta Opus Brut Nature in the glass is pale yellow with a lovely golden colour. On the nose, it presents a bouquet of flowers and ripe white fruit aromas with a length of nuts with the minerality and the salinity that are characteristics of the area. On the palate it is balanced and structured, recalling the flavours of ripe fruit and nuts. An obvious acidity which is well integrated with flavours from the ageing. The bubbles are fine and persistent. Very tasty and lingering aftertaste.
“From the podium of the wines, represents an evolution of the traditional concept of Gran Cava”. J.M. Pujol-Busquets
