Casteller Cava is a delicious sparkling wine made in the traditional method, with a second fermentation in the bottle. Aged for 12 months on the lees before release, it consistently delivers premium flavors at a non-premium price. The early-budding Trepat grape is unique to this part of the world, southwest of Barcelona. Trepat has the acidity of Pinot Noir with soft tannins, an ideal grape for the production of rosé. Casteller literally translates as "tower" in Spanish. The name refers to a local Catalonian summer game where different clans compete to create the tallest human tower.
"With a dark pink color, the wine offers strawberry and floral aromas, ripe flavors and excellent length. If there is a better value in rosé bubbly, I'd like to know about it", writes Jay Miller of The Wine Advocate.
