Pago de Tharsys is a 12-hectare estate based in Requena, a municipality in eastern Spain, in the province of Valencia, located on the left bank of the river Magro.
The town was formerly a Moorish fortress, occupying a strong position in the mountainous region of Las Cabrillas. The terroir is limey and sandy, poor in organic material and with good permeability. The vineyards are on the high plateau, at 650 metres altitude,with a north-south orientation on a light slope.
The blend of the Cava is 75% Macabeo and 25% Parellada, selected from 20 years old vines
The initial fermentation is in stainless steel tank at 14°C. After one year ageing the wine is disgorged without adding any expedition liquor.
The wine is fresh with fine bubbles, clean floral notes and nice grassy aromas. Further notes of banana and citrus fruits are revealed and the finish is crunchy with balanced acidity.
