Rimarts Cava

Brothers Ernest and Ricard named their winery Rimarts as an homage to their late father Ricard Martínez de Simón, a pioneer of handcrafted Cava wine from 1987.

Working in the town of San Sadurni, Ernest and Ricard have maintained the traditional winemaking methods of their father to produce some of the most exciting Cavas of the DO. To make their signature product, they plant Macaque, Chardonnay, Parellada and Xarel.lo.

Their philosophy values quality over quantity, with under 80,000 bottles produced each year, all aged for a minimum of 15 months. Ernest and Ricard use highly artisanal and organic winemaking methods, disgorging each bottle by hand with the help of their mother. The three of them work on the conveyor belt together, producing each bottle with love and care.  You have to see hand disgorgement to believe how laborious and difficult it really is. You need a keen eye, and a thick thumb!

While they maintain tradition in their winemaking, Ernest and Ricard have managed to make Rimarts an exciting and contemporary brand, using eye-catching label designs innovative practices. Visitors are also welcome to tour the Rimarts winery, making for an exciting travel destination.

    Produced using a blend of Xarel-lo, Macabeu and Parellada, the wine is aged for a minimum of 18 months before it’s released.

    Straw yellow in colour, with a lovely lime-green hue, the Brut Reserva 18 has medium bubbles that gently drift to the surface.

    The tropical notes on the nose of pineapple and banana are supported by a denser, more robust butter and woodsy background. In the mouth, the wine has very good acidity and a lush round mouth feel. Big almond, ripe pear, lemon cream, and a touch of caramel and butter rewards on the finish.

    Vinified in the traditional way, the base rosé wine completes secondary fermentation in the bottle with no added sugar. Afterwards, Martínez Brut Nature Rosé is aged for 9 months prior to its commercial release.

    A pale rose colour with tints of blue and light silver, it possesses small, persistent bubbles with an elegant release.

    Offering a very sweet bouquet with notes of red fruits and candied redcurrant, it shows sweet fruit with a refreshing, smooth and subtle, creamy sensation. The finish is long and delicate.

    Starting with the same rosé that is used in their stunning Cava Martinez Rosé, the team at Rimarts does something extraordinary: teaming up with the experts at the Carpier smokehouse near Areny del Munt, Rimarts introduces fine smoke when the wine is aging in barrel.

    The result is one of the most unique sparkling wines produced not just in Spain, but anywhere in the world!

    Attractive pale and soft salmon pink in colour, the fine, persistent bubbles form a dense crown. Fresh and highly complex aromas with smoky tones present a subtle nose and red fruit finish. The palate is balanced, broad, savoury, rich and elegant. Its evolution in the glass shows varietal character, ending with a very long and elegant finish.

    This is a dynamic Cava, which challenges the drinker. Although it can be consumed on its own, it really does demand food to bring out its full enjoyment.

    When paired with an excellent accompaniment, Cava Rosae is a revelation!
