Bohigas Rosat Brut Cava NV (Trepat/Pinot Noir) (750ml)

Bohigas Rosat Brut Cava NV (Trepat/Pinot Noir) (750ml)

(85% Trepat, 15% Pinot Noir). "Pale pink with purple red reflections. The fruity aromas intertwined and confused between the floral aromas. A subtle blend of strawberry jam and garden roses, along with creamy notes from the fine lees. Fleshy, fruity and powerful, with a good acid core freshens pleasant notes of confectionery and extends the perception mouth. Final where the red fruit and spicy notes (sandalwood) offers a large sweet memory." Winemaker notes

The juice is macerated for a few hours on the skins. The first fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats. The wine is then bottled along with yeast and some added sugar and the second fermentation takes place in the bottle in their underground cellar. The wine ages beyond the second fermentation for 9-12 months on the lees. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Brut allows for between 6-12 grams.

Fermí Bohigas is a family-owned winery that has roots dating back to the 13th century. The estate is located in the town of Òdena in the River Anoia valley, about 45 minutes west of Barcelona. The current family and their ancestors have been growing grapes and making wines at this location consecutively since 1290. Their first bottling took place in 1870. They first used the name "Bohigas" on a wine label in 1978. Today, the family’s estate encompasses 300 hectares of which 110 are split between two separate vineyard properties, named "Can Maciá" and "Can Batllevell", both of which have their own cellars. From grape-growing to bottling, all Bohigas wines come from their estates. The vineyards are farmed organically, and the estate is now in official organic conversion. For the cava wines, Bohigas focuses on the historical and indigenous varieties of Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada for whites and Trepat for red. The estate is very famous for its Xarel-lo vines which allow for extended lees aging of the cavas in the bottle during the second fermentation. Given the meticulous care and attention to the Cavas - from vineyard to cellar to bottle, the wines are finished with low dosage levels (8g on the Reserva and 6g on the Rosat). Today’s current owner is Jordi Casanovas Bohigas, who carries on the family tradition of producing high-quality wines from 100% estate-grown grapes. His daughter Maria Casanovas is the winemaker. In 2000, they invested heavily in the modernization of their cellar at Can Maciá (the site of their original winery), where they traditionally produce and bottle their cava, as well as a number of still wines.
