Vineyard Notes: The vineyards are located within the DO Penedès in northeastern Spain, a few miles south of Barcelona in the Alt Penedès subregion. 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: Single vintage and mostly Pinoit Noir. Each grape variety is harvested, crushed, and fermented separately in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature, with coupage in November. The secondary fermentation is in the bottle, as is typical of the Méthode Champenoise. The wine is aged for 12 months on its lees before disgorgement and dosage.

Tasting Notes: This rosado’s Pinot character is beautifully evident on the nose and palate, and this will delight anyone who typically embraces grower Champagne.

Pairing Suggestions: This Naveran Brut Rosado will pair with soft cheeses, fresh fruit, white meats (pork and chicken), and even richly flavored red meats. This Cava is great for sipping on its own and special occasions.
