Argila Brut Nature 2013
WineSpark Price €34.64
Penedès is a very progressive Catalan wine region which broke out of the Cava classification to make a name for itself on quality.
To be able to label your wine as Penedès, your grapes must be organic, and you must age the wine for a minimum of 15 months on its lees.
The idea being that whenever you buy Penedès sparkling wine, you can pretty much be guaranteed a high quality of fizz.
And this is one of the best sparkling wines in all of Spain, from Eva Ventura of Mas Bertran, who also makes our wildly popular Balma Brut Nature. And she has the has the medal to prove it - it’s her most awarded wine.
The grape is 100% Xarel·lo, which is the grape behind Spain’s best fizz.
It’s from a special 60 year-old single vineyard, Eva’s best one, based on clay soils.
This is an incredibly special bottle - it’s from the 2013 vintage, but still tastes so fresh, creamy and pure.
The value here is incredible for such quality inputs and age.
If you ever wanted to try how great Spanish sparkling wine can be, this is the one that you have to try.

When I started looking for Cava for WineSpark, my Spanish winemaker friends talked me out of it. ‘Forget Cava’, they said, ‘It’s all about Penedes’. I heard it from enough people in the know to take notice.
Penedes is a pretty progressive place, as wine regions go. Since 2017 for example, all sparkling wine must be organic.
Goes wonderfully with any celebration / welcome drinks, and locals would have this with paella.
