Codorníu Organic Brut Cava is made using traditional native varieties Xarel·lo and Parellada, which, in this case, were grown in some of the best organic vineyards in Penedès. Meticulous care was taken throughout the whole process of growing the grapes and making the must, even harvesting on different days to avoid any contact with the rest of the varieties. This 100% organic cava is the perfect partner for mild, lightly spiced dishes. How about raising a glass of organic?
A pale yellow colour with a very fine mousse forming a persistent crown.
Prominent fruity aromas (Granny Smith apple) and floral notes such as lemon verbena with sweet hints of fresh almond.
Balanced, fresh, creamy with a long finish.
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.
Both the products used during the entire winemaking process as well as the different stages complied with organic appellation standards.
In order to avoid any contact between the organic grapes and musts and the rest of our production we decided to pick these grapes on different days to the rest of our grape harvest. Separate material was used inside the winery and the fermentation vats were separately labelled. Both the products used during the entire winemaking process as well as the different stages complied with organic appellation standards.
