The Wine

88+ points - Matt Steeves

"What sets Terra Terrae Brut apart from many others is that this is an organic Cava that benefits from organically farmed grapes which is an increasingly popular but hard to find feature in many wines, especially at this price point. Terra Terrae shows fresh golden delicious apple, almond croissant, and lemon tart on the nose. The palate is crisp, clean, and refreshing with a nice blend of sweet orchard fruit and texture from the fine bubbles. A great sparkling wine for hosting over the holiday season and would be a great base for sparkling wine cocktails on New Year’s Eve. A new product for the LCBO, available for home delivery at:" www.lcbo.com

88 points - John Szabo        Master Sommelier 

"Clean and fresh, gently yeasty-toasty Cava, with a solid dose of white and yellow fleshed orchard fruit. The texture here is really enticing, with tightly knit effervescence integrating seamlessly on a creamy, mid-weight frame. Length and depth are also impressive for the price category. Fine value."  Tasted January 2016 WineAlign

88 points - Sara d’Amato

"A bright, crisp and savory Cava with notes of grapefruit brulée and sweet peach on the nose. The palate offers a sweet and sour character with flavours of cool stone and zesty citrus fruit. Relatively dry with a kiss of sweetness on the finish. A great deal of explosive flavour for the price."

The Background

  COVIDES Vineyards & Wineries was founded in 1964. It is Spain’s fifth largest Cava producer. Hard working winegrowers + sophisticated technology + an outstanding winemaker result in wines and cavas with an excellent price to quality ratio. Cavas are made with the same method as Champagne but is distinguished by the use of Spanish indigenous grapes such as Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada which are given additional character by the distinctive Mediterranean climate and soil near Barcelona.

 

Bodegas Covides is the largest producer in Catalonia with an annual production of  25 million kilograms of grapes. They have 3 facilities, that combine the best of traditional winemaking with the latest developments that have won international awards for their modernity and efficiency.

Each facility has all the winemaking tools including pneumatic presses, stainless steel vats, fermentation temperature control, skin-contact maceration, continual cold stabilisation, and a selection of yeasts. This allows the Covides’ enologist to use her skills, knowledge and creativity, to instill distinct personalities to the cavas .
