Coinciding with the year of its 90th anniversary, Caves Bohigas launches the new Noa cava, its first ecological and limited edition cava, which will be slaughtered upon request.
The new Noa belongs to the Bohigas family range, a selection of wines and cavas of more exclusive and limited production, replacing the old Noa cava and with a different bottle format, in addition to the organic certification.
Noa has a production of 2,643 numbered bottles, which will be slaughtered little by little, throughout the year and on request. The product is presented in a 'canister' case (tall, tube-shaped box) and a label in dark gray and gold tones.
Regarding the elaboration, Noa is Vintage 2017 and its blend: 50% Xarel·lo and 50% Pinot Noir, made as blanc de noirs. The cava seeks a balance between the most important native variety in the area (Xarel·lo) and the French variety Pinot noir, which gives the blend elegance and complexity.
The name 'Noa' represents the new generation of the Bohigas family, which has managed the cellars since 1929, when Joan Vives, the current owners' great-uncle, began to produce sparkling wine for his trade. Since then, the winery has been growing and improving its facilities and technologies until today, which celebrates its 90th anniversary.
Bet on innovation
Following the market trend, Bohigas is committed to innovation and the renewal of products in the medium and high ranges. Two years ago, the new Inicis red wine was released on the market, made with a recovered variety, Sumoll, and produced following a millenary fermentation method, from Roman times, with clay amphoras.
Now, the Inicis wine and the new Noa cava coexist in the Bohigas family range of products, along with the Udina white wine. After three years of conversion, next 2020, all the vineyards - located in Òdena and Gelida - will already be organic, in order to gradually convert all Bohigas cavas into organic products.
