50% Macabeu – 30% Xarello – 20% Parellada
"Fresh & nuanced flavors of citrus fruit, melon and fresh almond. Complex enough to keep you coming back for more but simple enough to drink with abandon."
"The name of the winery is Mata I Coloma. The name of the winemaker is Pere Mata. The wines have individual names as well, but they all say ‘Pere Mata’ on the label, which is appropriate, as they are truly a reflection of one man’s passion. Pere farms 5 hectares in the town of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia in the heart of the Penedès, Catalunya.
The work is all organic and by hand. Pere only uses the classic grape varieties of Xarello, Macabeu and Parellada, as he feels that these are the grapes most suited to the task of speaking the terroir of Cava. The wines all spend at least 2 years on lees and some over 4 years. All of the wines are vintage dated and all have disgorgement dates listed on the back labels. The quality and transparency of these sparkling wines inevitably brings up Champagne– but Pere is not attempting to make Champagne. He is making Cava with a level of dedication and craftsmanship that is usually associated with the world's greatest sparkling wine. The results are inspiring." - Winemaker
