Cascas Wines: Altitude Brut
The vineyard is located 110km from the Atlantic coast at 790m of altitude, with wide open terrain E-W orientated, with hot days and cold nights. It is grown in granite and sandy soil, harvested by hand. Grapes go to the press without de-stemming or crushing then cold settled 24 hours: fermentation is for 24 hours in the traditional method. On the nose, hints of cereals, brioche and apples, lemon in colour, along with creamy and crispy mid-palate with a zesty long finish. Ideal with Brie and Gouda Cheese, olives, almonds, fried potato dishes, smoked salmon and smoked meats. It has fine, silky bubbles which is happy to go with any course and every celebration although you might want to keep for those special guests, really its that good! Serve chilled.
