Discover the properties of the Rioja Cava Santalba Brut Nature Reserva
Carefully elaborated by the Rioja Santalba winery, this sparkling wine is presented as an authentic jewel of Rioja Alta viticulture. It is a Viura monovarietal from sustainable vineyards located in Gimileo (Paraje Vigorta).
These vineyards are characterized by being located in an area of clay-calcareous soils at an altitude of 450 meters that contribute their properties to the grapes. To obtain the Cava Brut Nature Reserva of Santalba, a manual harvest is carried out in which only the best bunches are selected that will give life to this wonderful broth with Qualified Denomination of Origin Rioja.
The Santalba winery has also produced the big brother of this spectacular Cava, so you can enjoy it twice thanks to the Santalba Brut Nature Magnum Cava, in a 1.5 liter format.
Elaboration process of Santalba Brut Nature
After the harvest, a partial destemming of the Viura bunches is carried out, to continue with the squeezing of the grapes, which is carried out in a delicate way so as not to damage the raw material. The fermentation of the must takes place in stainless steel tanks. Finally, this valuable broth rests for 6 months on the lees, to go on to 30 more months of rest in the bottle, thus giving a spectacular cava reserva.
Tasting notes and pairings of this Rioja cava
This wine is characterized by the elegance and complexity provided by the Viura variety. In addition to that, to the eye it appears as a pale yellow but bright broth that shows its fine bubbles and foam. Its complex aromas are especially reminiscent of white flowers, apple and sweets such as cookies or brioche. These marry perfectly with the sensations in the mouth, where it has a perfect volume and creaminess.
To taste Santalba Brut Nature Reserva Cava in the best possible way, it is important that it is served at a temperature of between 8 and 10ºC. The best dishes to accompany this Viura are those that come from the sea, such as fish and seafood of all kinds. It is also perfect to drink next to some slices of Iberian ham and black truffles.
