The history of Bach takes us back to 1915 when the brothers Pere and Ramón Bach i Escopet moved to Sant Esteve Sesrovires from Barcelona and purchased the “Can Estrada” estate, which dates back to the XVIII century. Thanks to the revenues they obtained from the cotton trade, the Bach brothers were able to invest in starting up a winery which they gradually extended, buying up new plots until they amassed a total of 365 hectares. The 1920 harvest, made up of the Xarel·lo and Macabeo varietals, marked the long awaited inauguration of Bach. Pere and Ramón Bach settled in the Penedés region with the idea of making a wine that would be destined for aging and they consequently built a cellar that was 95 metres long. They then filled it with 1,000 Bordeaux oak barrels which they bought for 50 pesetas each. The Bach brothers conceived the idea for their wine and gave their stamp to it along with their enologists. They also delved into their textile background to give it a name and called it “extrísimo”, the name given to the premium quality cotton imported from Egypt and India. A long time has gone by since then but the spirit of the Bach brothers has been faithfully maintained right up to this very day: quality, originality and personality in all its wines and cavas.
Fine and persistant bubbles. Macabeo gives some typical cava characteristics; chardonnay contributes with personality and parellada with finesse. The final blend is extremely original. On the nose, it is clean with green apples, citrus fruit, pineapple and some roasted almond aromas derived from the ageing on the lees. On the palate, it is delicate, crisp and the aromas are confirmed in the lingering flavours of citrus, pineapple jam and biscuity, nutty overtones.
