Sumarroca is an estate where the Marquies of Monistrol had owned the largest farm in the entire Penedes region of northeast Spain, before a new ownership took it and renamed it in 1999. As the years progress, the Sumarroca family remains involved daily in the operations of the estate, and has a strong commitment to very sustainable farming practices, zero irrigation in the fields, and following strict organic regulations in order to produce the best fruit possible. A combination of several microclimates ranging throughout the fields with influence from the Mediterranean, the protection from the Monserrat mountains, as well as 15 different soil types, makes for a wide range of still and sparkling wines. Not only similar in production and range of dryness to sweetness in Champagne, the Cavas of Spain are comparable to some of the top bubblies of the world.
sumarroca cava brut reserva
parellada, xarel.lo, macabeo, chardonnay
The Cava Brut Reserva is made from the traditional Cava varieties Xarel.lo, Parellada, and Macabeo, plus the addition of Chardonnay to add an element of texture and fruit to the final wine. After harvest, each grape’s must goes through primary fermentation separately in stainless steel before being bottled together with a small dosage (7 g/l) for a second fermentation in bottle. These bottles then rest for at least 20 months before disgorgement and release to the market. This Cava is bright straw yellow with small persistent bubbles, and fragrant with citrus fruits and apples on the nose. The palate is very fresh and crisp with a lovely texture and acidity, with apple fruit and earthy tones from the dose of estate Xarel.lo.
sumarroca brut rosado
100% pinot noir
The Cava Brut Rosado is made from the Pinot Noir that grows directly around the estate in the famous Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. After harvest, the must fermented in stainless steel before being bottled together with its dosage for a second fermentation in bottle. These bottles then rest for at around 14 months before disgorgement and release to the market. An explosion of aromas of wild strawberries, raspberries, and rose petals jumps from the glass, leading to a palate that is fresh with berries, cranberries, cherry blossom, and rhubarb. A very crisp and refreshing Cava with persistent and clean bubbles, it is ideal for the dinner table or any occasion possible.
