Pere Mata "Cupada" Rose Brut Nature Cava NV - Catalonia, Spain
Varietals: 100% Monastrell
Super rare 100% Monastrell rose. Zero dosage.
The name of the winery is Mata I Coloma. The name of the winemaker is Pere Mata. The wines have individual names as well, but they all say ‘Pere Mata’ on them. We call these wines by that name, Pere Mata. And it’s appropriate because they are truly a reflection of one man’s passion. Pere farms 5 hectares in the town of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia in the heart of the Penedès. The work is all organic and by hand. He grows only the historical grape varieties of Xarello, Macabeu and Parellada as he feels that these are the grapes most suited to the task of speaking the terroir of Cava. The wines all spend at least 2 years on lees and some over 4 years. The quality of these sparkling wines inevitably brings up Champagne – but Pere is not attempting to make Champagne. He is making Cava with a level of dedication and craftsmanship that is usually associated with Champagne. The results are inspiring.
