Pop the bubbly! It's time to celebrate!
Personalised Cava - if you need a little inspiration...
Have you noticed how your guests suddenly become more animated when a bottle of bubbly appears? Sparkling wine just seems to add an air of excitement to an event, doesn’t it? That loud ‘pop’ as the cork shoots out of the bottle; cheers as the fizzing, frothing bubbles land in the first champagne flute, and the heartfelt toast that follows.
We think that sipping a glass of crisp cava is a brilliant way to mark a special occasion, whether it’s a birthday milestone, an engagement or a wedding anniversary. And why not add a thoughtful touch with a personalised label on your bottle of bubbly? With a full-colour label that’s resistant to scratching and printed with waterproof inks, our Personalised Cava is a wonderful keepsake to treasure for years to come – once they’ve toasted with the contents, of course!
Our cava is a Loxarel Saniger Brut Nature Reserva and it’s crafted in the Masia Can Mayol vineyard, located in the wine-producing region of Penedès, in Catalonia, Spain. This organic winery was founded in the 1930s, and the 50 hectares of vines on the land are farmed by the Mitjans family, who’ve been crafting wine and cava there for four generations.
Amongst the grape varieties grown at Masia Can Mayol are Xarel∙lo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. And it’s the Xarel∙lo grape - a native of Penedès - that gives Loxarel its name: it’s a play on the Catalan word for this white grape.
Crafted from a blend of Parellada, Macabeo and Xarel∙lo grapes and using the traditional fermentation method, the caves (yes, that’s the plural of ‘cava’!) are aged for more than fifteen months underground. The end result is an elegant, dry sparkling wine with a golden hue and fine effervescence.
And what does our fizz taste like? It’s a light, smooth and well-balanced bubbly with a fruity aroma. Notes of apples, pears and almonds, and hints of crisp citrus, create a clean, delicious cava that’s perfect as an aperitif and delightful with puddings.
So gather up your guests and pop open that cork, it’s time to celebrate!
