Cava

Cava means cellar in Catalan and most production is still from the area of Catalonia in the north-east of Spain. Cava is produced in the same way as Champagne, using the 'Methode Champenoise,' where the wine continues fermenting in the bottle whilst slanted downward so the yeasts settle in the neck. When the wine is ready, the neck of the bottle is frozen with the containing yeasts and, after removing the bottle cap, the pressure in the bottle will push out the icy plug and the winemaker can top up with the same wine, or can give it a dose of wine with some sugar to increase fermentation or to add sweetness. In Spain the process is known as the 'Metodo Tradicional,' or Traditional Method, using the Spanish grapes of Viura (Macabeo), Xarel-lo, and Parellada.
