Ice Cava is said to be a premium cava created using the traditional method and made with Macabeo, Xarel.lo and Parellada grape varieties with a touch of Chardonnay to “create the taste experience of icy freshness and powerful aromas, with a palate that is creamy yet sweet, with a long finish”.

The end result is described as: “Fine bubbles combined with a nose of peaches, ripe pears, flowers and nuances of tropical fruits. The palate is creamy yet sweet with a long finish.”
