Tutus Tuus is much more than meets the eye. In a blind tasting, this Cava will be likely confused by a fine grower Champagne. The CVA family-project of Totus Tuus started with the 07 harvest with the only purpose of making a fuller bodied sparkling that is capable of ageing in addition to showing more complexity than your typical cava. The Latin expression Totus Tuus, means: “everything for you” or “all yours”. WATH MAKES THIS WINE UNIQUE?: Totus Tuus is aged for 20 months before release. The aroma and flavor profile of Totus Tuus is very similar to fine Champagne but with a Mediterranean flair. Estate-bottled Cava that is a Spanish equivalent to “Grower Champagne” for a fraction of the cost. RATING HISTORY: Gold Medal By Critics Challenge Interntl Wine Competition GRAPE: 40% Chardonnay, 18% Xarello, 18% Macabeo, 18% Parellada, 6% Pinot Noir PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: This Cava has very expressive floral, clover, citrus and mineral aromas that are a great match for meat, fish and chicken tapas. Totus Tuus has a bright, dry, lively mineral character that will compliment sweet, savory or spicy flavors with equal facility. It will most likely take you quite some time to find a food that this Cava won't pair well with' VINIFICATION AND AGEING: Primary fermentation occurs in stainless steel tank before the wine is bottled prior to its secondary fermentation. The wine is aged for 20 months on its lees, a mixture of inactive yeast and good sediment, which helps the wine achieve richer flavors and smaller bubbles. PRODUCTION: 1,400 cases LOCATION, SOIL, CLIMATE: The vineyards are located within the Penedés region (Zone 5) in northeastern Spain, a few miles south of Barcelona in the subregion of Alt Penedés. The estate is located in the village of Maset at 273 meters (896 ft.) elevation. The High Penedés has been growing French grape varieties for centuries. The earliest reference is the Roman occupation of Spain during the 3rd Century A.D. The soils are limestone and sand with clay subsoil. The texture of the topsoil allows for good water drainage, while the subsoil has good water retention, an ideal equilibrium. The medium soil pH and low percentage of organic matter results in balanced acidity and moderate yields of grapes from the vines. The average temperature from April-October is 66.3'F. The days have hot temperatures and the nights are moderate for this high Mediterranean region. In this case, “high” refers to the northern latitude and “Mediterranean” the area's proximity to the sea. The annual rainfall is 23.9 inches. TASTING NOTES Totus Tuus Cava shows bright aromas of peach, lemon and orange zest, with a touch of licorice. The wine is concentrated, tactile and dense in the mouth, with a sappy, stony character to its citrus, pit fruit and anise flavors. Shows richness and vivacity in the mouth and the bright finish is long. ALCOHOL CONTENT: 11.5%
