DIBON Cava is an exciting project developed by the Tetas family, owners of Bodegas Pinord, founded in 1949. Now run by the 3rd generation of the Tetas family, their winemaking interests centre around the region of Penedès and they are the acknowledged specialists in producing the great sparkling wines of the region, Cava.
DIBON Cava has been developed to complement Bodegas Pinord’s own range of Cava called Marrugat and was originally destined only for the local Spanish wine drinker appealing to perhaps a younger market than the historically significant Marrugat sparkling wines.
The DIBON Cava wines have been well received in International markets with the DIBON Cava Brut Reserve scoring 88/100 and a “Best Buy” recommendation from Wine Enthusiast magazine, along with a “Good Value” designation from Wine & Spirit magazine. Whilst here in New Zealand, it was recently awarded 4 stars by Cuisine magazine.
Fermentation and maceration of the grapes for more than three weeks. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle and it is kept for more than one year in the cellar.
Recommended Serving Temperature: 6ºC
Clear red and pinkish tones. Small bubbles are gently released to form various strings that rise to the surface.
It has a gentle fragrance with smells of fruits, raspberry and blackcurrant. Also noticeable are the tertiary aromas of the ageing on the lees which give it more wine-like and syrupy features.
It is very full in the mouth with a splendid bubbly sensation that fills the whole palate. Red fruit also appears, even more markedly in the nose. Long finish and great elegance.
