2. Diamond Jubilee Cava
Gonzalez Byass has launched a Cava to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The wine will be exclusive to Tesco. Made from a blend of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo, the wine has been made in a traditional method, with the varieties vinified separately and then blended before being bottled for a second fermentation and aged for 12 months. Winemaker Damia Deas says: “Our winemaking team in the Vilarnau winery in Penedès has spent the last 18 months developing what we consider to be an exquisite tasting. Cava, which everyone will be able to enjoy at the Diamond Jubilee celebrations taking place all over the UK this year.” In 1897 the company produced a Sherry to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria.
