Vineyard Notes: The vineyards are located within the DO Penedés in northeastern Spain, a few miles south of Barcelona in the Alt Penedés subregion, at an elevation of 1,312 feet. The Naveran Estate's higher elevation allows the grapes to retain more natural acidity, which results in wines that are zesty, fresh and have expressive aromas.

Winemaking Notes: Each grape variety is harvested, crushed and fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. Second fermentation occurs in the bottle typical of the champagne method. The wine ages for 18 months on its lees. Then, disgorgement is followed by dosage.

89pts (2014 Vintage) Vinous 5/2017
"Spicy and sharply focused on the fragrant nose, displaying fresh red berry and cherry aromas and a subtle floral note. Sappy and energetic in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and strawberry flavors that show good clarity and a touch of dusty minerality. At once concentrated and lively, finishing smooth and long, with a repeating red berry note."
