Poema Cava Brut for Valentine’s Day Bubbles
posted on February 7th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas
It’s St. Valentine’s Day and one must cater to this romantic moment by sharing a bottle of sparkling wine with a loved one. This Spanish gem offers up vibrant aromas of ripe peaches, pears and a hint of spice. The palate is bright and fresh with citrus and Granny Smith apple flavors that segue to toasted bread notes and a creamy texture. Layers of orange rind and spice persist through an elegant finish.
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 Spain’s Metodo Tradicional.
