AA Alta Alella Privat Brut Nature Reserva Cava 2013

SpainAlta Alella began 20 years ago when Josep Maria Pujol-Busquets and his wife Cristina Guillen acquired nineteenth-century estate Can Genis, near Barcelona and converted it to organics. Bright and tight, with ripping pithy lemon acidity leading ample broken stones, green apple and a scent of herbal anise in this organic Cava. The zero dosage is evident in the strictness seen here, one that will win over purists' hearts. Vibrating mineral hums on the finish. From sauló (sandy granitic) soils, this chardonnay spends 15-27 months on the lees in stainless steel before release.Tasted: 15 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: MB 26.00 Banville & Jones Producer: Alta AlellaVarietal: ChardonnayCSPC: 37141
