TASTING
Remembering the scents of grass in the mountains of Andorra, where Grandalla (daffodil), or the Flower of the Pyrenees blooms in the middle of April, we created this wine, using the varieties of grapes with a very floral character. Made of a special blend, it retains the aroma characteristics of the vintage, without losing its personality, and even increasing the feeling of balance and complexity, which makes it a unique cava.

The prime feature of this GRANDALLA is numerous strands formed by its tiny bubbles. Its spectacular colour is pale yellow with hints of green. Aging notes combined with floral, jasmine and orange blossom hints. Its taste includes ripe fruit, dry fruit and slight notes of toast, everything well-balanced with the notes of aging. It is very persistent and leaves the aftertaste that lasts over time.

recomMENDATIONS
Store in a vertical position in its case. Keep in a dry, cool and dark location.  I recommend serving it at between 8-10ºC
PAIRING FOOD
Delicious with roasted meats and fish. Special with seafood and roasbeef. Try it with sushi and salted fish, like anchovies. Perfect with smoked and barbeque fish. I like tasting it calmly, as a real treasure that slowly discovers all its tones, opening like a box full of surprises.
