Aged up to twelve months in the perfect chill of the caves that Cava sparkling wines are named for, Cordon Negro Extra Brut is blended with a 2.3 percent dosage, making it the perfect off-dry wine for a number of menus and occasions. Like all cavas, Cordon Negro Extra Brut is produced using the traditional méthode champenoise, creating privileged bubbles nurtured through double fermentation, followed by the long, carefully-tended process of aging, riddling and disgorgement.
Cordon Negro Brut Extra Dry uses the same luscious Spanish grape varieties as Cordon Negro Brut, embracing Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada grape varieties, with slightly higher alcohol levels and a dosage of 23 grams per liter. The light, fruity Macabeo, combined with the robust, powerful depth of Xarel-lo, and the demonstrative finesse of the Parellada grapes delivers a great balance of aroma and acidity.
