COUNTRY: SPAIN
VINEYARD REGION: D.O. CAVA
NAME: CODORNÍU PINOT NOIR BRUT

COMPOSITION:
100 % Pinot Noir

VITICULTURE:
Codorníu Cavas are only made from grapes coming from our own vineyards or long-term suppliers with viticulture co-operation programmes. With more than 6,000 hectares of vineyard supply Codorníu. During the harvest, we supervise and receive grapes every day to make our own base wines. This is the best guarantee for our quality.

ELABORATION AND FERMENTATION:
After a specially careful night harvest, the grapes are de-stalked, crushed and left macerating for 3-4 hours in order to obtain the desired colour. After that the first fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 15º-18ºC for around 10 days. At the end of this process the must becomes wine.

SECOND FERMENTATION AND AGEING:
The obtained wine will ferment a second time in the bottle, distinctive feature to the 'Traditional Method '. It takes place in the interior of the cellars at a constant temperature of 12º-15ºC. The minimum time as established in the Cava Regulatory Council is 9 months for the ageing of a Cava. This particular Cava supersedes the required ageing period, obtaining an elegantly distinguished cava.

ANALYSIS:

Reducing sugars.................................6- 8 g/l
Alcohol degree..................................11,5-12º
Total acidity................................6-6,5 g/l

SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS:
Colour: A pale cherry-red colour.
Aroma: The bouquet is reminiscent of recently picked and deliciously ripe summer fruits -particularly raspberries and blackcurrants-
Flavour: An incredibly fresh taste with a very subtle citrus flavour. Abundant palate sensations, which provide a unique sensory experience that makes Codorníu Pinot Noir unforgettable.

Cava
Spanish Cava is a great alternative to Champagne or even California Sparkling Wine, and in most cases offers a great value.  Codorniu made from Pinot Noir is one of my favorite Cava's and retails for around $19 a bottle.  This is an incredibly versatile wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif, paired with an entree or served with dessert.      I love bubbles in general so that first little blast on the tongue alerts my taste buds that something good is about to …
