Let’s celebrate the season with an affordable and absolutely delicious cava from Mercat!
In The Glass: Pale straw in color with a complex nose of ripe pear and brioche. Zesty minerality dominates the palate with note of the chalky soil on which the grapes are grown. Stone fruits like apricots and nectarines are framed by a structure of acidity and limestone that show through due to the lack of dosage.
The Wine: Mercat is a selection of plots between 15-40 years old, planted on calcerous and clay soils. The wine is vinified in the traditional method, aged for 18 months (twice the minimum for the DO), hand riddled, and disgorged to order.
50% Xarel.lo, 40% Macabeo & 10% Parellada
The Growers: Inspired by Barcelona’s Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria – the quintessentially Catalan market destination where locals (and tourists alike) gather to eat, shop and gossip. Mercat Cava aims to evoke the same spirit of community, liveliness, and tradition. The Cava is made using traditional methods in the cellars of El Xamfra, where Francisco Dominguez hand crafts every bottle with the utmost attention and care. The Mercat Cava spends a minimum of 18 months aging on its lees and is finished with a very low dosage, allowing the chalky soils on which the old indigenous vines are grown, to shine through on the palate.

It has a wonderful peachy bouquet that blossoms in the glass with hints of dried apricot and honeysuckle. The palate is very well-balanced with crisp acidity and a fine thread of bitter lemon that lends tension and poise, leading to a very champagnois finish. Excellent!”
