Value for money – indigenous varieties of Valencia
Pago de Tharsys
Located in the unheralded region of Utiel-Requena, Pago de Tharsys is an old estate which dates back to 1805. It was purchased by the Garcia family in 1981 and they began adding plots of vines in the early 1990s. Therefore, despite the fact it is an estate steeped in history, it is very much a modern project that remains in progress.
Known as “The Godfather of Valencian Cava” for his work to grow the reputation of D.O. Cava wines in this area, Vicente Garcia has always strived to find harmony between traditional and modern winemaking techniques in order to bring out the best of the indigenous varieties of Valencia – particularly Bobal.
Brut Nature Cava
This particular Cava is a blend of Macabeo (75%) and Parralleda (25%) and fermentation takes place via 'Methode Champenoise' before being aged in bottle for 16 months prior to release. Dry with a vivacious mousse, this makes for a perfect aperitif. The persistent mouse carries with it aromatic notes of apricot, apple and pear. The palate is light and fresh with a cleansing acidity leading to a lingering finish.
