To celebrate its 200th anniversary, the Marqués de la Concordia family of wines has added two exciting additions to its range of cava: a limited-edition Marques de la Concordia Gran Reserva and a Blanc de Blancs.
The Marques De La Concordia Gran Reserva is made using 30% Chardonnay, 25% Xarel-Lo, 25% Macabeo and 20% Parellada grapes which are handpicked from 40-year-old vines. This cava is aged in the bottle for 38 months and includes a collector’s cap to commemorate the bicentenary of the ennoblement of Marqués de la Concordia.
The Marques de la Concordia Cava Blanc de Blancs is made from 25% Chardonnay, 30% Xarel-Lo, 25% Macabeo and 20% Parellada and is aged for 24 months. This new product development treads the middle ground between the Marques de la Concordia Seleccion Especial Cavas and the premium Gran Reserva.
Nick Mantella, Spanish wine expert and The Haciendas’ commercial business development director, said: “The future of Spanish wine lies in the premium sector and it is here that we are looking towards growth with the addition of our cava. Premium cava has grown with the sparkling category boom and over the past 10 years, sales of cava have doubled from 2 to 4 million cases.”
