Anna de Codorníu is made in homage to the woman who changed the history of our winery. Her mastery, elegance and authenticity are reflected in the cava that inherited her name. In 1984 the first vintage went on sale, a pioneer at the time for being the first to incorporate the Chardonnay variety into the blend. Anna de Codorníu Ice Edition is a version with Demi-Sec dosage, perfect for enjoying as an aperitif on its own, with ice or in a mixed drink, cocktail-style. Why don't you welcome your guests with this refreshing cava served over fruit and ice? It's sure to be a success.
There are fresh notes of spring fruits and white flowers, memories of peaches and almond blossoms.
In this cava we discover the fantastic combination of fruity and citrus aromas, with a perfect balance in the mouth. Its taste phases harmonize perfectly, complementing with a special smell and taste to offer an enveloping, long and refreshing profile. The palate provides a pleasant sensation of density, always maintaining a great freshness and vitality.
The history of Codorníu is the story of 18 generations of a vine growing family. In 1872, Josep Raventós made the first bottle of cava, applying the traditional method to a blend of the grape varieties of Penedès: Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada. Codorníu reflects the history, tradition, passion and expertise of a family winery with more than 450 years of history, which today continues to maintain its leading position in the production of quality wines and cavas. His cellars in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia were declared a National Historic Artistic Monument in 1976, as one of the key works of Catalan modernism, created by Puig i Cadafalch.
We plan the best time to harvest each grape variety.
We plan the best time to harvest each grape variety. The grapes are destemmed and pressed to obtain the musts with ferment at a regulated temperature of 17-18 °C. Once all the fermentations have taken place and the wines have been stabilised, it is time to prepare the coupage, where each variety contributes its special features. In order to maintain the essence of Anna de Codorníu, the composition of varieties remains unchanged: 70% Chardonnay grapes (continental climate) + 30% traditional varieties (Mediterranean climate), but with one difference. In order to preserve the freshness of the final cava the selected base wines are livelier and harmonise better with a higher sugar content than do more traditional cavas. After blending, the bottles are stored in our underground cellar at a constant temperature.
