About This Wine...
This is a beautifully balanced and fresh Cava, clean apple and pear fruits, fresh citrus notes with a clean, candied lemon finish.
“Only 3% of Cava is made outside Catalonia, including this beauty from Rioja.” Martin Moran in the Sunday Times 15th April 2018
“A bottle so pretty, it’s perfect for gifting, this top quality Cava is made by the same traditional method as Champagne, giving it crisp apple flavours with a full, toasty finish.” The Irish Independent, 9th December 2017
“the future for open-hearted wine lovers is to embrace the existence of very high quality sparkling wines made with the same care and ambition as Champagne” and Villa Conchi scores 90 pts. The Sunday Business Post 13th August 2017
“good balance between fruits and a rounded note of toast. Delicious aperitif, or serve with salads and light fish dishes” Corinna Hardgrave, The Irish Independent 25th April 2017
Founded in 1928, although the family can trace their roots in Rioja soil over two centuries. They have 90 organically managed hectares in the hills of the cooler Rioja Alavesa region, as well as long term contracts with growers covering a further 200 hectares of mixed regime viticulture. This is a dynamic, forward looking producer making elegant, fruit-filled wines which are neither over-oaked, nor over- alcoholic.
