Codorníu Organic Demi-Sec Cava is made using the 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. The demi-sec version of this 100% organic cava is ideal for those who like their cavas with a touch of sweetness.
Pale yellow with very fine and persistent bubble.
The fruity aromas (Granny Smith apple) and floral like the verbena, with sweet notes of fresh almond, stand out.
Balanced, fresh, creamy and with a long memory.
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 oenological products used during the whole production process and the different stages guarantee the denomination of ecological.
To avoid any contact of the grapes and organic musts with the rest of our production we decided to pick these grapes on different days from the rest of our vintage. The material used in the winery was separated from the rest and the fermentation tanks were specially marked. Both the oenological products used during the whole production process and the different stages guarantee the denomination of ecological.
