Tasting Note
View
Brilliant yellow with greenish hues. A fine mousse forming with continuous effervescence and a persistent crown.
Nose
Refreshing citrus notes appear on the nose and palate, underlain with notes of honey, walnuts, almond blossom and apple.
Mouth
The Chardonnay’s creaminess together with its period of aging enable us to make this Brut Nature without the addition of sugar. A balanced cava with a long finish and delicate flavours.

Vineyard and processing
Elaboration (vinification)
We plan the optimum time to harvest each varietal. The grapes are destemmed and then pressed to obtain the musts. We then add selected yeasts and the musts are left to ferment at a temperature of 15 ºC - 17 ºC.Once all the fermentations have taken place and the wines have been stabilised, they are then blended and the resulting wine is bottled along with the liqueur de tirage. The bottles are stored in our underground cellars (at a constant temperature of 17 ºC) where the second fermentation takes place followed by a period of aging in contact with the lees of the yeasts. In total, they are left at least 12 months in the winery before the riddling (rotating the bottles to facilitate agglutination and subsequent elimination of sediment) and disgorging, where the sediments deposited after the second fermentation are removed. A dose of expedition liqueur is then added, which determines the cava’s residual sugar content. Finally, the bottle is capped with a cork closure.
Vineyard (viticulture)
The grapes used to make Anna de Codorníu come from two very different winegrowing regions. The Chardonnay varietal comes from the winery’s own vineyards located in the region with the most continental climate within the D.O. Cava, in Lleida, which makes for optimum concentration, less acidity, more body and more intense aromas. The winegrowing is based on integrated vineyard production methods that have been especially adapted to make sparkling wines. The harvest takes place around mid-August and always at night so as to keep the grapes as cool as possible and retain aroma whilst preventing oxidation or spontaneous fermentations. The Xarel.lo, Macabeo and Parellada varietals come from vineyards selected by our Winegrowing and Enology teams in the area of the Penedés, where these varietals attain their optimum typicity: a good level of acidity, freshness and citrus and floral aromas.
