It is a common misconception that all Cava comes from
. Whilst the
majority does, it can be made anywhere in Catalonia as long as it conforms to the
strict production methods laid down. Spain
Dominio de la Vega is based in the hills inland from
Valencia and has built up an impressive
reputation for its Cavas in a relatively short period of time, archived some of
the highest ratings ever given to Cava by Robert Parker and winning numerous
awards in .
The Cavas here are all rich and toasty with extensive lees ageing in bottle and are something special.
The Brut Reserva Especial are made from hand harvested Macabeo and Chardonnay grapes, pressed then fermented at 16C with selected yeasts and then aged 3 months in new French oak prior to second fermentation in bottle.
Aged on the lees for minimum 20 months. Finished with a dosage of only 5 g/l.
Deep colored and rich on the nose with toasty nutty aromas. Quite full bodied yet fine and elegant, with ripe yellow plum, brioche and candied citrus leading to a long, structured finish.
