Vatua means surprise in Catalan and this is a truly original blend that results in a refreshing, invigorating sparkling that's sure to change your perspective on what Spain can offer. As with all of the Colet wines it is produced 100% from estate fruit and all of it is certified organic. All wines come from a single vintage and spend 24 months in bottle before disgorgement.
The main point of difference with Vatua is the blend itself which combines 40% of Parellada (one of the traditional Cava varieties) with two more atypical partners - 50% Moscatell (Muscat) and 10% Gewurztraminer. This give the finished wine a more floral and aromatic character which partners beautifully with the bone dry palate and persistent fizz to make a great aperitif. The fruit character here sees crunchy green apples to the for with the Moscatell and Gewruz adding a touch of peachy richness underneath. At half the price of a bottle of most the big name Champagnes this has tons more character and will give most of them a serious run for their money.
