Blanc de Noirs
Blanc de Noirs 2021
Cava Reserva Brut Nature
Minimum 18 months cellar maturation
Straw-yellow colour with green hues and soft bubbles, aromas of ripe sour fruit (apple), with floral and varietal touches typical of Pinot Noir, creamy on the palate with cherry and citrus flavours and a sweet texture.
La Fassina. Unique to Caves Avinyó, set on the border of Avinyonet del Penedès, enjoying fertile soils, deep and well-drained, with a silty clay loam texture, and thanks to the privileged location it benefits from a higher rainfall regime than our other vineyards. The plot is settled in a low-lying area, protected from the easterly Levant winds, making it the perfect location to grow the Pinot Noir from which we make our Blanc de Noirs cava.
We came from one of the scarcest harvests in recent decades, from a year (2020) of a lot of rain, starting in December there was a radical change in terms of rainfall, these disappearing completely, until the beginning of the harvest only 163,-lts fell. This drought and the moderate spring temperatures made for an easy and relaxed agricultural year.
The flowering of the different varieties was perfect.
The harvest started normally and surprised us; due to the low rainfall, a year of sugar concentration and a drop in yield was expected, but this was not the case. In short, healthy and very balanced harvest
