ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Naveran Brut Vintage is an estate-bottled vintage organic Cava from Alt Penedés. Proprietor Michel Gillieron Parellada's goal with this organic Cava is to show the purity, youth and bright flavor character of the three indigenous grapes used to make it. Xarel-lo contributes body, Macabeo gives aromatic intensity and Parellada lends acidity to the wine. 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 sub-region, about 30 minutes outside of Barcelona. Despite the fact that Cava is Spain's largest volume of wine exported to the US, Cavas are produced utilizing the same methods as in Champagne and have remained Spain's best-kept secret for quality and value in wine. Caves Naveran is a premium Cava producer that exclusively uses the organic grapes they farm on their own properties. Naveran Brut Vintage is a grower Cava that spends at least 12 months on its lees after fermentation in the bottle to achieve greater depth, complexity and elegance.
