Bodegas Sumarroca, Nuria Claverol, Finca Moli Coloma, Gran Reserva Rosé, DO Cava, Spain, 2017
Carlos Sumarroca is one of Spain’s most important and awarded agriculturists and together with his wife Nuria the enterprising couple set about establishing Sumarroca as the largest estate grown Cava producers in Spain.
They practice sustainable farming, harvest at night, and only use free-run juice. Combining their passion for the land and tenacity in cultivating vines, their Cavas have bags of personality and character.
The site is located next to the Anoia River, in the municipality of Subirats. It is a calcareous soil containing a large amount of river pebbles and clay. It is located at the foot of the coastal range, a fact which protects it from the humid sea breeze. The vineyard is open to the influence of dry winds from central Spain
Maceration is done at low temperatures to draw the most from the variety’s colour and personality. Static filtration for 24 hours and fermentation in stainless steel vats at 16ºC. Aged in stacks for around 20 months.
No oak ageing
Aromas of red fruits, bringing out touches of ripe cherry, strawberry and ripe plum. It is fresh with fine, elegant bubbles.
This is the perfect cava for an aperitif. Its rosé structure means it can accompany all kinds of dishes: stews, fried food, pasta, smoked foods.
