Spanish Sundays: Poema Cava Rosé

My last long post on Cava I wrote back in November following a press tasting. I’m a big Cava fan and in particular, those made using the funky indigenous grape called Trepat.

Today’s wine is called Poema Cava Rosé. I can’t find any website for it. The grapes are grown in the Conca de Barberà region of Catalonia. The soils are limestone. The grapes macerate for 16-20 hours in stainless steel for 15. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle.

Fresh and fruity with hints of berries and flowers, it has nice acidity and it paired it with salmon one day and oysters the next. The wine is 100% Trepat. Acidity is very high, 6.6g/l. It ages 12 months on its lees. “Poema owns 20% of the vineyard sources; the rest are under long-term contract with growers who follow strict quality specifications. Fruit is sustainably farmed, using organic fertilizer and no herbicides,” Kobrand states.

The winemaker is anamed Jordi C. Marti who has been in that positions since the company was founded.
