Cava de Guarda

This category of Cava is characterised by nine months aging in the bottle. After this period of time, the wine develops certain nuances, aromas and intrinsic characteristics that are different and more complex than when it was bottled, so that you can enjoy it in its optimum state. Since the main criterion of Cava is its aging time in the bottle, following the traditional method, the concept of “Guarda” refers to the capacity of a wine with the appropriate characteristics for aging correctly.

Among the necessary characteristics for a wine to be considered a Cava de Guarda, we must take into account the polyphenols, the acidity, the pH, the alcoholic content and even the type (or types) of grapes from which the wine has been produced.

Cava de Guarda is the new nomenclature, approved in July 2020 by a plenary session of the D.O. Cava Regulatory Council. The purpose of creating this new category was so that consumers can identify more easily the different types of Cava currently available on the market, and can therefore make a more informed choice.

So if you are looking for a Cava that is fresh, fruity and full of vitality, a Cava de Guarda is the ideal option.

THE TRADITIONAL METHOD

Sparkling wines made using the traditional method are characterised by a second fermentation in the bottle, during which molecules of CO2, which produce the effervescence, are released. This method is a quality factor shared by the great sparkling wines of the world.
