ALBERTO ORTE 'TOTUS TUUS' CAVA RESERVA
ALBERTO ORTE VINOS

The family-project of Totus Tuus started with the '07 harvest with the purpose of making a fuller bodied sparkling that is capable of ageing in addition to showing more complexity than your typical Cava. The Latin expression Totus Tuus, means: "everything for you" or "all yours". Totus Tuus is made in honor to Alberto Orte's mother.

40% Chardonnay, 18% Xarello, 18% Macabeo, 18% Parellada, 6% Pinot Noir 

VINEYARD Vines planted in 1975. Tended in limestone and sand with clay subsoil at 273 m (896 ft) elevation.

WINEMAKING Primary fermentation in stainless steel followed by secondary fermentation in the bottle. The lees aged in the bottle for 20 months. By law, Cava needs to be aged with its lees for at least 9 months. The lees, a mixture of inactive yeast and good sediment, help the wine achieve richer flavors and smaller bubbles through time.
