Unveiling the Character: A Tasting Journey

Dominio de Requena Cava Brut pours a beautiful pale yellow colour with shimmering gold highlights. The first visual impression hints at the vibrancy to come. As the bubbles rise persistently in a fine and even stream, they create a long-lasting frothy head, enticing you to take a sip.

On the nose, the Cava unfolds a symphony of aromas. Refreshing citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit take centre stage, interwoven with hints of ripe green apple and pear. Delicate floral nuances add a touch of elegance, while subtle whispers of green tea and fresh hay lend a touch of complexity.

The first sip delivers a burst of flavour that mirrors the enticing aromas. The citrus and green fruit notes come alive on the palate, offering a delightful balance between sweetness and acidity. The well-integrated bubbles dance on the tongue, creating a lively and refreshing mouthfeel. As the wine lingers, a hint of minerality emerges, adding a touch of sophistication and depth.

The versatility of Dominio de Requena Cava Brut makes it a perfect companion for a variety of dishes. Here are some suggested food pairings to tantalise your taste buds:

  • Canapés and Starters: Kick off your meal with a selection of light bites. The Cava's refreshing acidity pairs beautifully with smoked salmon blinis, creamy goat cheese canapés, or even delicate vegetable spring rolls.
  • Seafood: Allow the Cava to complement the natural sweetness of seafood. Pair it with grilled prawns, pan-seared scallops, or a light and flavoursome fish pie.
  • Salads: The bright acidity of the Cava cuts through the richness of creamy salad dressings, making it a perfect match for a classic Caesar salad, a Waldorf salad with walnuts and blue cheese, or a vibrant Thai chicken salad.
  • Pasta: Lighter pasta dishes find a perfect match in Dominio de Requena Cava Brut. Enjoy it with a creamy pesto pasta, a seafood linguine, or a simple cacio e pepe.

Beyond the Bottle: The Art of Cava Making

Dominio de Requena Cava Brut is produced by Pago de Tharsys, a renowned Cava specialist from Valencia.  They are dedicated to expressing the unique character of their terroir (the land where the grapes are grown) through meticulous winemaking practices.

The Cava is crafted using a blend of Chardonnay and Xarel-lo grapes, two classic Spanish varietals perfectly suited to the sunny Valencian climate. The grapes are hand-harvested at optimal ripeness to ensure the finest quality fruit. Following the traditional Méthode Champenoise, the wine undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle, resulting in the formation of those delightful bubbles. The Cava is then aged for a minimum of 12 months on the lees (spent yeast cells) which adds complexity and richness to the flavour profile.
