Poema Penedes Brut Cava 750ml
Poema carefully observes the Cava DO's stringent regulations to craft its top-quality, small-production Cavas, which are made using the same traditional method used in Champagne. The grapes are grown in the limestone hills surrounding Barcelona on vines that are a minimum of 20 years old. A green harvest and careful selection help to ensure that only ripe, pristine grapes are picked. Grapes are harvested manually and pressed in three different wineries close to the vineyards before each lot is fermented separately. With 55% of the must free-run juice, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks, then the lots are blended and second fermentation takes place in the bottle according to Metodo Tradicional. Residual sugar is 5 g/l.TASTING NOTEFresh, clean, citrus, mineral and Granny Smith apple aromas with toasted bread notes make this a great example of Cava.FOOD PAIRINGThis sparkler is a good match with light tapas, oysters and seafood.POINTS OF DISTINCTIONMade utilizing Metodo Tradicional, the same traditional method used to craft ChampagneA true Brut-style Cava, made with indigenous grape varietiesMade from vines a minimum of 20 years old, for greater depth of flavorVersatile with tapas and light appetizers

SCENT & FLAVOR
Deep colour, almost opaque.
Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.
On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.
“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking
Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
