At Cava Guilera we believe that cava needs time to become a Great Cava. For this reason we only make long-aging cavas: Reserva and Gran Reserva. All our aging cavas are smooth, harmonious and elegant. With a fine bubble that delicately explodes in the mouth and toasted and fruity flavors that intensify with the years of aging.

Types of cava: sugar, aging, grapes and versatility.

What is the best cava? Depends. At Cava Guilera we believe that the best cava is the one that you like the most. Do you like fresh, toasted, fruity, sherry cava? Cava is like a Never-ending story… let your imagination fly and enjoy. This is what cava exists for: ] Below we share four basic ideas so that you can get your bearings and know which cava you like best.

 

Cava and sugar: do you like your cava dry, kind or sweet?

  • Cava Brut Nature: the driest cava, without added sugar.
  • Cava Brut: the friendliest cava, with a subtle touch of sugar.
  • Semi Seco Cava: the sweetest cava, ideal for sweet palates.

 

Cava and aging: do you like fresh or full-bodied cava?

Reserve Cava

  • Fresh fruit and fine bubbles.
  • Tasty, refreshing and fun cavas.
  • Our reserve cavas are aged for 24 – 36 months.
  • The minimum aging established by the DO Cava for Reserva cavas is 18 months.

Grand Reserve Cava

  • Ripe fruit and even finer bubbles.
  • Elegant cavas, rich in nuances and very gastronomic.
  • Our Gran Reserva cavas are aged for 60 – 170 months.
  • The minimum aging established by the DO Cava for Gran Reserva cavas is 30 months.

 

Cava and grapes: what flavor do cava grapes have?

Traditional coupage of cava

  • Combination of 3 white grapes: xarel lo, macabeu and parellada.
  • A reserve cava with traditional coupage will give us citrus and fresh fruit.
  • A Gran Reserva cava will give us creaminess, ripe fruit, toasted and smoked.

Monovarietal 100% xarel lo

  • They are our most versatile cavas.
  • They have the elegance of a Gran Reserva cava.
  • And the freshness of the xarel lo grape, which has a high acidity.

rosé champagne

  • Combination of two black grapes: Grenache and Pinot Noir.
  • The pinot noir is finer and more intense and the grenache provides sweetness.
  • Together they give an explosion of red fruit, aromatic, refreshing and sweet.
