Bodegas Pinord is a family business which was founded 150 years ago. Since then, generation after generation, year after year, the wines produced by the family have been growing in prestige, the indigenous varieties have improved markedly, and the family name has become inseparably linked to the Penedés area where they are based.The Penedés district is situated between Barcelona and Tarragona, with the mountains of Montserrat marking the border in the north and the Mediterranean in the South. The soil is varied, contrasting from chalky clay to sandstone with distinct differences in depth so that the vines may take root. The mild Mediterranean climate is ideal for growing vines, indeed there is evidence that the Romans planted vineyards here. The slightly wetter weather in the valleys means that there is no need for irrigation.
GrapesMacabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada
AppearanceIt has a brilliant appearance, and gives off a considerable amount of small and medium-sized bubbles. A good quantity of carbon dioxide causes a persistent foam to form in the glass. The colour is pale straw yellow.
AromaFairly intense. Tertiary aromas from the second fermentation mingle with the aromas from the primary fermentation to give a distinctive bouquet.
TasteThis young Cava is frank on the palate with tastes developed in the bottle. It has good body. Smooth and silky, the carbonic content keeps it fresh and lively, providing a long-lasting taste. Very popular on the domestic Spanish market and in Belgium, where good quality Cava is drunk widely.
