Read in my blog what has been happening to Cava and you will begin to understand why I chose this amazing Classic Penedès as an alternative.
The Colet winery is one of a handful of producers who walked away from the Cava DO as they felt Cava had been devalued by the more commercial style. In order to differentiate themselves they now produce their sparkling wine as Classic Penedès which is - and has to be by regulation
- 100% certified organic
- made from grapes that are 100% from the Penedès region (in their case they are all from their own vineyard) and
- 100% Reserva which means it has been aged for a minimum of 15 months (in fact for 24 months for this wine) before release.
And like Cava it is produced by the Traditional or Champagne method, making it a great alternative to Champagne.
This is amazingly food-friendly sparkling wine - but also great to drink on its own
"Bright yellow colour. Fine and well-integrated bubbles. Elegant and balanced. Aromas of lees, dried herbs, dried flowers. On the palate, fresh with a little bitterness and good acidity."
Think of this as top-class Cava; Colet opted out of the Cava DO to differentiate its wines from cheap Cava flooding the market. This is 100% organic, has rested on lees for 24 months giving it heaps of character, fruit and savoury flavours
