Elaboration (vinification)
We start by planning the optimal harvest time of the red varieties, looking for a good level of coloring matter in the skin, as well as considerable acidity and moderate alcohol content. After despalillar the grape, we let the grape macerate, leaving the must in contact with the skins for about 3 or 4 hours. Next, the rosé colored must ferments at a temperature of 15-17 °C. Later the assembly of the same is made and it is bottled together with the tirage liqueur. The bottles pass to the underground cellars (at a constant temperature of 17 °C) where the second fermentation takes place followed by a period of aging in contact with the lees of the yeasts. In total, the wine will spend a minimum of 9 months in the cellar, after which the removal and disgorging takes place. Subsequently, a quantity of shipping liquor is dosed, which will determine the residual sugar content of the cava, which determines its Brut dosage. Finally, the bottle is finally covered with a cork stopper.
