Mas Codina Cava Brut Nature Gran Reserva

Mas Codina Cava Brut Nature Gran Reserva

Regular price €30.00
Tax included.

Extra-dry cava with the extended bottle aging required by Gran Reserva status. A sensational sparkler from a limited annual production of 3,000 bottles.

An easy recommendation to make—this is one of our favourite bubblies.

Cava, you may be glad to hear, is unrealistically inexpensive and is not sufficiently prized—almost entirely because of historical errors in marketing it to the world. This is a traditional method wine, produced by secondary fermentation in the bottle and demanding just as much care and skill as the sparkling wines of Champagne. However, because local grape varieties are used, in this instance alongside Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and because of the specific geology and climate of Catalonia, Toni Garriga's Cava Gran Reserva is a wine with a character and finesse all its own.

Because of its very low residual sugar level: less than 3 g/l, the success of the wine depends completely on the quality of the fruit. Pure, fine aromas of hay and apples announce a clean, crisp effervescence that is ideal for toasts and receptions; but this cava has the depth, from a minimum of three years' cellaring, to prove an excellent dining wine for all kinds of cuisines. Try a bottle with a roast chicken dinner or a paella and taste for yourself what a serious food match it can be.

Situated in the heart of the Alt Penedès - a privileged subregion protected from the elements by two mountain ranges, 40 hectare Mas Codina is a boutique, family-owned company dating from 1681. It uses only estate-grown fruit.

One of the effects of COVID-19 is increased business for online businesses and courier companies, and this has led to delays despite everyone's best efforts.

PLEASE ALLOW EXTRA TIME: UP TO FIVE WORKING DAYS for deliveries, though many arrive sooner than this.

We recommend that, for instance, you order as early as possible in the week if you are choosing wine for the weekend.

Any delays are likely to be more significant in more densely populated areas of the country.

Online orders

Our online orders are delivered by courier to ensure fast and reliable delivery of each carefully packaged consignment. Because nobody likes breakages, we use very strong and secure packaging specially designed to protect wine bottles. 

Personalised champagne orders are dispatched to meet your requested deadline, or otherwise as soon as possible. Please allow at least one extra working day for these orders to be prepared.

Eircodes please

The ideal delivery address has someone available to sign for parcels during office hours. This may mean that a work address is a better choice than a home address, as each delivery of our lovely wine needs to be signed for. An Eircode eliminates any doubt about the delivery location, and you can find or check Eircodes here.

Phone numbers please

Our couriers do their best to deliver and often have amazing local knowledge, but in the event of difficulties a reliable telephone number for the recipient makes all the difference and is a required piece of information. A mobile number is usually best.

Track your order

When we dispatch your order, we send on a tracking code so that you can follow your order in transit on the courier's website.

Delivery outside Ireland

If you need delivery to Northern Ireland, please get in touch for availability and rates. Unfortunately, we do not send wine overseas because of the complicated bureaucratic requirements and very high cost.


Faulty bottles

Wine is a natural product: its variety is what makes it so interesting!

Sometimes, though, a faulty bottle turns up. It's rare, but it does happen.

We want you to enjoy the wines you buy from us, and we'd like you to enjoy doing business with us too.

If you are unlucky enough to receive a bad bottle, please let us know immediately by calling the office on 021 431 6000 and we'll issue a credit in compensation.

Broken or Damaged Deliveries

Despite our best efforts to wrap and pack securely, damage in transit occurs from time to time.

If there's a breakage, our couriers will normally return the whole fragrant mess to us straight away.

If, however, the damage isn't apparent until you open the box, we'd still prefer to have the whole parcel collected. We'll send you a replacement as soon as possible.
