The style and name of the Gran Palas are based on the cinema of the 20s. This cava is a tribute to the decade of the twenties, when we started producing cava. It is made with our native grape varieties; Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada, hand harvested in the Penedès area. Through aging in lees for a minimum of 9 months, we are able to produce balanced, fresh and fruity cavas with great food pairing versatility, good structure and well-integrated fizz.

Sparkling: The wine then undergoes its second fermentation in the bottle.

 

TASTING NOTES: 

Appearance – Straw yellow with green highlights.
Nose – Fresh and expressive primary aromas such as green apple and pear along with dried nuts and fresh baked bread notes.
Palate – Primary fruity flavours combined with those from the ageing on lees. Fresh with medium structure. Good balance between the acidity and the fruit concentration.
