Cava Fuchs de Vidal Reserva Brut (Spain)



Forget about the mass produced Cavas you often find in supermarkets, rather opt for this crispy fresh bubbly produced by the lovely family bodega Capità Vidal. A curious and wonderful thing about Cava is that it is made in the same way as Champagne; using the ‘Methode Traditional’, which involves secondary bottle fermentation and guarantees a benchmark of quality. And quality we certainly have with this classic and fabulous Cava.. Definitely not just for celebrations, but for daily joy!

Clean, green apple, pear and citrus fruit, backed up by some toasty, nutty notes.

Refreshing and soft, a  lively mousse and smooth texture.

About Capità Vidal

Capità Vidal
The small winery was founded by one of the best known Spanish sailors Enrique Vidal (hence the name Capità (Captain) Vidal), who spent a lifetime sailing around the world. When he finally ‘came to port’, he decided to dig his sea legs into the earth and start a winery high in the Penedés. After decades of producing quality wine, the ‘captain’ who is now in his seventies, has retired to dedicate his days to sailing again. His stepdaughter Helena runs the business today and is the main winemaker.

Capità Vidal treats its products with genuine care and attention: the grapes are hand-picked and all the cava bottles are still hand-riddled. There are six wines on the market, but the main focus (and best-seller) of Capità Vidal are their cavas, known by the name of Fuchs de Vidal.

The winery itself, enclosed/surrounded by vineyards, is located in the Alt Penedes about 200 meters above the sea level. Inside, the two passions of Enrique Vidal – wine and sea – are exposed to the visitor through pictures, portraits and small design elements. With a yearly limited production, Capità Vidal is all about quality over quantity.

The Region

Cava | Spain

You may wonder where the DO Cava is located, and the answer is complex. Because Cava is actually a wine region without a region. DO Cava wines can be made wherever the cava-method is used and wherever cava-designated vineyards are located. This means that the DO is spread among 160 towns in seven of Spain’s political regions. However, most cavas are made in Cataluña, specifically in the Penedès area. The heart of Spain’s cava production is Sant Sadurní d’Anoia; 85 percent of all cavas produced in Spain come from this area in southern Barcelona province. The Ebro Valley is also home to quite a few cava vineyards.

Because the DO is located in many different areas, it’s nearly impossible to characterize its climate, soils or geography. Most of the designated cava vineyards enjoy a Mediterranean or continental climate.

Cava Grape Varieties
Traditionally, three grape varieties were used in cava production: Macabeo (viura), Xarel.lo (pansà blanca) and Parellada. Today, you can also find cava wines made from Chardonnay and Subirat Parent as well.
