Blend Pinot Noir and Trepat, let it ferment 12 months in the caves and you get a lively raspberry pink cava,  full in colour, with lively mid-sized bubbles, persistent in the glass and forming a full crown.

This attractive cava from Freixenet was elaborated by methode champenoise, and  spent more than 12 months of aging in underground caves. It  is full of intensely ripe summer red fruit aromas – summer raspberries, red currants and cherries, with a beautifully balanced acidity, and a long  refreshing finish. 11,50% alcohol.

The Pinot Noir,  a grape variety with a low tannic structure, not particularly full bodied, but elegantly fruity on the palate, is harvested at the beginning of September in Mas Bernich estate, in the village of Masquefa in the High Penedes. The Mas Bernich estate covers 92 hectares of sandy chalk, of which 15 are Pinot Noir.  

The Trepat, which is a later ripener, is harvested towards the end of September, and has its origins in Serral, part of the region of Conca de Barbera, in the province of Tarragona, a naturally chalky area, with soils low in organic matter. The climate of this alluvial valley creates a perfect environment for vine growing, and in particular the Trepat varietal, creating a clean, light, refreshing structure with great aromatic expression.
