Llopart Reserva Brut
Sold Out (inc VAT)
Produced by Spain's oldest boutique Cava house. Still riddled by hand.
Serious sparkling wine. This is a blend of the traditional grape varieties, with a high proportion of the most strongly flavoured, aromatic and widely agreed to be the finest Cava grape variety, Xarel-lo. Ageing on the lees for 18 months gives it a richness, while the 8g/l of sugar makes it dangerously drinkable.
A Latin document shows that the Llopart estate has been making wine since 1385. But in 1887 they made the decision to ditch the wheat fields and olive groves they were also tending, to focus on the production of Cava, making it the second oldest Cava house in the world.
