NV Conquilla Brut Rose Cava
Conquilla, Catalan for “shell”, is an estate-grown Cava produced in both white and rosé which delivers impeccable, family-farmed quality; an attractive price; and an eye-catching package alluding in playful fashion to its genesis in the sedimentary limestone soils of the Penedès valley west of Barcelona. This is ridiculously good for this price!
100% Pinot Noir. All estate-fruit. Maceration on the skins for about 8 hours to achieve the desired hue. After primary fermentation, a long, slow secondary fermentation at low temperature followed by twelve month’s aging sur lie in bottle before disgorgement.
Pretty pink. Effusive nose of fresh berries, flowers and spice. Bright, juicy, and lively, it has an appealing creamy, elegant mouthfeel loaded with berry, cherry and mint notes. This goes down WAY too easy! Buy this one by the case for midday drinking and for sharing with friends - either as a gift or while maintaining social distance. Great aperitif and with light appetizers and first courses.
