THE HARVEST

It usually starts in the second week of September. It is carried out manually and the grapes are transported to the winery in boxes containing 25-30 kgs or in small stainless steel trailers when the vineyard is close to the winery.

VINIFICATION

Grapes are harvested at night to avoid high temperatures and premature fermentations. They are quickly transported to the winery and refrigerated at 15ºC to avoid the color of the skins dyeing the must. The flower must is obtained by pressing the grapes lightly, so it does not contain tannic materials that confer sourness to the wine. Once the must has been filtrated, yeasts are added to the base wine to start the fermentation process at a constant 16ºC to preserve its primary aromas. For the second fermentation, the bottles are stored in underground cellars at a constant 15º-17ºC where they are in contact with their lees.
THE AGEING

This cava spends a minimum of 12 months in the bottle. After this period, sediments are decanted naturally and removed with a minimum loss of sparkling wine and liquor of expedition is added.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Attractive cherry red color. Fine and persistent bubbles.
Nose: Good intensity with clean aromas of ripe fruit.
Palate: Fresh, fruity, pleasant, with good structure and medium intensity.
Food matches: This sparkling wine is perfect as an aperitif as well as an accompaniment for salads, rice, seafood and light fish dishes.

THE HARVEST

It starts at the end of August and extends till the end of October. It is usually carried out manually and the grapes are transported to the winery in boxes containing 25-30 kgs or in small stainless steel trailers when the vineyard is close to the winery.

VINIFICATION

Grapes are harvested at night to avoid high temperatures and premature fermentations. They are quickly transported to the winery and refrigerated at 10ºC to avoid the color of the skins dyeing the must. Once the must is pressed and each variety has fermented separately at a constant 16ºC to preserve its primary aromas, the must is blended and bottled along with the base wine, to which the yeast and sugar are added to produce the formation of bubbles. For the second fermentation, the bottles are kept in underground cellars at a constant 15º-17ºC where they are in contact with their lees.

THE AGEING

This cava spends a minimum of 12 months in the bottle,. After this period, sediments are decanted naturally and removed and liqueur is added.

TASTING NOTES

Nose: Good intensity with fruit aromas and toasted nuances.
Palate: Fresh, warm, pleasant and round, with a long finish.

Company details

More than 20 years setting the standards for excellence
Made in Spain

Javier Ruiz de Galarreta founded ARAEX Rioja Alavesa twenty years ago, bringing together nine small and medium sized winegrowers from the Rioja Alavesa region and creating the original firm – ARAEX Rioja Alavesa. In just a few years, ARAEX became one of the main drivers of the production and export of the appellation.

The Alava-born entrepreneur recognised the signs of his age and created Spanish Fine Wines in 2001, a second union that grouped winegrowers from other respected Spanish regions. Today, Javier Ruiz de Galarreta continues to create new wine ventures, characterised by quality, global projection and respect towards the roots and identity of Spanish vineyards.

From the crafting of prestigious wines to the organisation of tasting panels, ARAEX Grands Spanish Fine Wines‘ activities stand out for their excellence and vision. Among our latest initiatives, the current cooperation with the world renowned winemaker Michel Rolland is especially remarkable.

“We are glad to welcome you to learn more about ARAEX Grands Spanish Fine Wines
