Mas Candí - Corpinnat, Traditional Method Sparkling, Spain (2018)
Pale yellow colour with fine and persistent bubbles, notes of ripe, fresh fruit, with a predominance of lees and herbs. The same is reflected on the palate with nuances of nuts and excellent citrus acidity. With zero dosage (sugar added at time of bottling), this bone, bone dry sparkler will work equally well with the start of the evening as throughout the meal.
This classic Spanish sparkling wine from the Penedès region has been produced using the classic "methode champanoise" and has had at least two years on yeast lees.
Mas Candi is one of 9 wineries that has chosen to rename its methode sparkling wine from Cava to 'Corpinnat'. The signatories to this name have agreed to uphold very high standards of grape growing and viticulture, use only indigenous varieties, harvest grapes by hand and be as environmentally conscious as possible.
A blend of Xarel.lo (60%), Macabeo (20%), Parellada (5%) and 15% of other indigenous Penedes grape varieties.
