Bohigas Reserva Brut Cava is a pale straw yellow in color with golden hues and small, persistent bubbles. The nose is full of white fruit aromas, especially apple and pear, backed by citrus peel, white flowers, and some spicy bakery notes. In the mouth, it is pleasantly acidic with a creamy feeling from the bubbles and the white fruit and spice notes from the nose. The balanced finish harmonizes the acidity and leaves a fresh sensation in its wake.
Bohigas Reserva Brut Cava is the ideal "cava" to accompany a whole meal. It is best enjoyed with fish, rice, and dry fruits.
The Xarel-lo, Macabeo, and Parellada grapes are sourced from estate-owned vineyards about 45 miles west of Barcelona. The vines are trained to the Royat system, perfect for areas such as this with low rainfall. The first fermentation takes place in stainless steel at a controlled temperature. The wine is then bottled with yeast and added sugar for second fermentation, which takes place in the winery's cool cellar and lasts for 24 months before riddling and disgorgement.
For more than eight centuries, the Bohigas family has tended its vineyards in the Conca de l'Anoia, near the Catalan town of Odena. The vineyards have benefitted greatly from the closeness of the Anoia River while respecting the land and seeking a way to express themselves through the varieties that have best adapted to it.
