Appearance: A pale, lemon yellow colour, with fine, uniform bubbles that are slowly released to make a fine, delicate, lasting head.
Nose: Clean, deep citrus and yellow fruit nose: grapefruit, golden delicious apples, white grapes. Subtle notes of white flowers (acacia, calla lily), with fresh hints of moss and fresh hay.
Mouth: Initially fresh and clean in the mouth, with a wonderful balance between acidity and maturity. Delicate, smooth bubbles resulting from the long ageing process in racks which produce a pleasant volume in the mouth. A pure, fresh, lasting sensation on the palate. Elegant, buttery and baker’s yeast aftertaste. A wonderfully persistent clean, dry finish.
Serving: Serve between 6ºC and 8ºC in medium-sized glasses with a wide body, slightly narrower at the top. Pour slowly down the side of the glass to avoid breaking the bubbles. Combines perfectly with traditional cod fritters, boiled prawns, white fish, tuna and onion pasties, cauliflower and cod rice, seafood rice… and, of course, it quenches your thirst on a summer evening.
Note: Carlota Suria was the first cava made by Ana Suria and Vicente García, the founders of Pago de Tharsys in 1991 in their garage, and only 2000 bottles were made. This led to what Pago de Tharsys is known as today, and this cava still reminds us of the spirit leading to it: love, excitement, effort and a touch of madness.
