Ars Collecta Paratge Qualificat La Fideuera is a little gem hidden in the Alto Penedés, where the Xarel·lo shows all its expressiveness, acidity and elegance. Strains of more than 25 years are in full maturity and their roots have been deeply attached to this limestone and noble soil that provides structure and richness to this great cava. Ars Collecta La Fideuera is a cava that has aged slowly for more than 90 months at a constant temperature of 14 ° C between the thick walls of what was the first Codorníu cellar.

This cava brings organoleptic nuances that go beyond the spectrum offered by other cavas. These not only allow for a wide range of pairings (seafood, fish stew, meat stew, rock fish, mussels, seasoned meat, venison, casseroles, etc.) but it can also be savored on its own in order to enjoy all its registers.

Palate

An intense mouthfeel with volume, structure and good balance between the fruit and acidity. The mousse is delicate, creamy and exciting. Aromatic herbs appear in the aftertaste along with delicate toasty tones.

The Winery

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.

Elaboration - Vinification

La Fideuera is a cava that has aged slowly for over 90 months at a constant temperature of 14 °C inside the thick walls of what was originally Codorníu’s first cellar.

A traditionally crafted cava, selecting and harvesting the estate's premium quality grapes. Night harvesting at the end of September taking advantage of the cool temperature inorder to avoid oxidation of the grapes’ aromas. Hand-picked in small boxes. The grapes were transported in a refrigerated truck to our micro-winery where this range of cavas is made: El Celler Jaume. On entering we select the grapes, cool them and crush them in a pneumatic press. The must is fermented in small tanks at 17 °C. Following fermentation a selection is made of the wines that will make up the final blend. The winemaking process is undertaken with special care because Xarel.lo wines are susceptible to oxidation. La Fideuera is a cava that has aged slowly for over 90 months at a constant temperature of 14 °C inside the thick walls of what was originally Codorníu’s first cellar.
