“Initium” is the original Mascaró Cava assemblage created in 1946 from their Vilafranca del Penedès winery, just outside Barcelona. With minimal intervention in the field, the Mascaró family uniquely produces their cavas with a higher percentage of the Parellada grape in their blend than most of their Catalonian peers.

Fresh notes of green apples, apricots and lemon peel mix beautifully with more complex flavours of toast, pastry and biscuit due to a lengthy amount of time spent aging on its lees.  This is a unique, intense and delicate Cava that is an ideal option as an aperitif, accompanying a meal, or for celebratory toasting.  ¡Salud!
