Lees ageing: Minimum 72 months

Dosage: 0 g/l

Price: £38

Nose: Quite oxidative aged nose, with apple skin, bread and hazlenuts. It is almost sherry-like, and has a slightly golden colour too

Palate: Very good, with biscuit, nuts, some butter, and a bit of apple skin, as well as a salty sensation. A complex food-friendly Cava. Fresh, aged, but not oxidised. It does finish very dry, and, again, could benefit with a drop of sugar to lift the aromas soften the finish.
