Our sparkling wine is a good example of a classic reserve cava, with a minimum aging period of 20 months and organic production. On the nose it gives us notes of peach, citrus, white flowers, nuts and pastry and on the palate it has a smooth texture with fine bubbles and very good acidity. It is our most versatile proposal, which can accompany a multitude of gastronomic proposals, especially snacks and preparations with creamy textures, due to its contrast.
Long live Keiva!

2020 was a vintage with a lot of work in viticulture to minimize the affectations of fungus (mildew) due to the abundant localized rains in spring. The cava base wines were early harvested in order to preserve acidity and freshness. Lower yields, although of excellent quality. Harvest started 14th of August with Macabeo, and Xarel.lo was harvested on the 27th of August.

Cava is one of the most versatile wines that exists, which allows you to pair a meal from start to finish. If you have the opportunity, try pairing it with white meat, such as the Penedès rooster, with fibrous and consistent meat, and an excellent flavor.
The liturgy of the wine service recommends tasting this reserve wine between 8-10°C with a glass such as Riedel Vinum Champagne, but we will be pleased if you enjoy it with what, when and however you choose.
