Naveran Cava Dama 2010

Naveran Cava Dama 2010

Sku: 056795

Naveraan Dama is an estate-bottled Cava to which proprietor Michel Guilleron Parellada wants to impart longevity and great body. The Naveran family legacy began in 1901. Today the Estate has 110 hectares (272 acres) of vines in the town of Torrelavit located in the Alt (high) Penedés subregion. Despite the fact that Cava is Spain’s largest volume of wine exported to the U.S., Cavas are made utilizing the same methods used in Champagne and have remained Spain’s best-kept secret for quality and value in wine. Caves Naveran is a premium Cava producer that uses estate-grown grapes. Naverán Dama is a Cava masterpiece, a combination of Chardonnay, which gives the wine body and volume, and Parellada, which imparts a zesty, bright character that cuts through the buttery roundness of the Chardonnay. Champagne lovers will enjoy this Mediterranean “farmer’s fizz” with oysters, raw tuna and sushi. Its fresh acidity also compliments fruit desserts, especially peaches and sliced oranges.

Tasting notes
TASTING NOTES: This is one of the finest Champagne imitations, or Cavas, I have tasted from Spain. Aged on its lees for two years, the 2009 Naveran Dama Cava is a blend of 85% Chardonnay and 15% Parellada. Crisp notes of apple skins, brioche, baking spices and pears emerge from this fragrant, medium-bodied sparkler. It possesses tiny, uniformed bubbles, impressive purity and a heady finish. Consume it over the next 1-2 years.

Technical notes
(85% Chardonnay/15% Parellada). Aged 24 months on its lees.
