Haciendas adds two Cavas to tap into premium growth

The Haciendas Company now has two additions to its existing Cava portfolio.

The two wines have been created to celebrate the bicentenary birthday of the Spanish fine wine estate, Marques de la Concordia Family of Wines.

The first of these is a premium and limited edition Marques de la Concordia Gran Reserva, which has a limited production of 43,000 bottles. It is made using 30% Chardonnay, 25% Zarel-Lo, 25% Macebeo and 20% Parellada grapes, which are handpicked from 40 year old vines.

The Cava (rrp £14.99), is aged in the bottle for 38 months in 30 meter deep cellars and includes a collector’s cap to commemorate the bicentenary of the ennoblement of Marques de la Concordia.

Also new to the range is the Marques de la Concordia Cava Blanc de Blancs (rrp £12.99), which is made from 25% Chardonnay, 30% Xarel-Lo, 25% Macabeo and 20% Parellada and is aged for 24 months. This new product development is described as “treading the middle ground between the Marques de la Concordia Seleccion Especial Cavas and the premium Gran Reserva”.

Nick Mantella, Spanish wine expert and The Haciendas Company’s commercial business development director, said: “The future of Spanish wine lies in the premium sector and it is here that we are looking towards growth with the addition of our Cava NPDs. Premium Cava has grown with the sparkling category boom and over the past 10 years Cava has doubled from two million to four million cases.”
