Vineyard and processing
Elaboration (vinification)
This cava is made with the three traditional Mediterranean varieties: Macabeo (acid and strong wines), Xarel·lo (provides structure) and Parellada (adds subtlety). The three varieties are worked in different ways: different fermentation temperatures, different racking and different times in contact with the lees. Once the fermentations of the three varieties are made, we assemble the resulting wines and store them in the cellars, where they remain in contact with the lees for a minimum of 9 months.
Vineyard (viticulture)
The grapes used in the elaboration of Benjamines de Codorníu come basically from the area of Mediterranean climate of the D.O. Cava, where the autochthonous varieties show all their typicity. They are grown in vineyards selected by our viticulture teams that work together with our suppliers throughout the year to continuously improve the crops, carry out maturation monitoring, determine harvest times and finally, advise them so that the grapes reach our cellars in the best conditions through a quick and careful transport to the winery.
