TASTING NOTES

Traditional method sparkler from Trepat, Pinot Noir & Garnacha. In the glass, it is a delicate blush color with a subtle nose of strawberries, peach skin, and watermelon rind. In the mouth, the fruit is luscious with gracefully textured bubbles on the dry finish and an echo of red fruit.

Mont Marçal Brut Rosado (2017) - "Grand Gold Medal"

Grande M´daille d'Or
Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2019, May 2, 2019

Mont Marçal Brut Rosado (2016) - "Pale, brilliant orange. Ripe red fruits and succulent herb aromas show good energy and a hint of white pepper. Smooth and weighty on the palate, offering juicy raspberry, cherry flavors and a hint of candied rose. Delivers solid, fruity punch on the supple finish, which hangs on with good, gently spicy tenacity."

MONT MARçAL VINíCOLA WINERY INFO

Overview: The winery Mont Marçal Vinícola was founded in 1975 by Manuel Sancho who, after many years of dedication to the world of the music, directed his activity towards a new art; the world of wine and cava. Since 2015, under new ownership, the philosophy of the winery and the dedication to producing quality wines under the Denominations of Origén Penedès, Catalunya, and Cava continue. The winery, originally a 14th century farmhouse and then a 19th century convent, is now a state-of-the-art winemaking facility.

History: Manuel Sancho's 230-acre estate, "Finca Manlleu," is located on a prominent chalky knoll five miles south of Vilafranca del Penedès overlooking the hamlet of Sant Marçal. One hundred acres are planted to Parellada, Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Chardonnay for white wines; Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for reds. The "Mont" provides 360-degree exposure, creating a wide variety of microclimates for maturation of the various varieties.

In 1975, Manuel Sancho purchased a neglected 19th-century convent, originally a 14th-century farmhouse, converting it to a state-of-the-art winemaking facility and initiating the restructuring of the vineyards. Recent excavation has expanded the CAVA aging and bottling capacity, at the same time revealing medieval underground passageways in the chalk which have been carefully preserved for additional bottle storage.

Intrinsic vineyard quality and careful handling of the grapes obtain a naturally-rich base wine in little need of dosage. Mont-Marçal Brut Reserva is produced from the indigenous white grapes, Parellada, Macabeo, Chardonnay and Xarel-lo, aged at least 24 months with the yeast, and disgorged on order for shipment.
