About:  100% Cartoixa Vermell from Tarragona in the South West of Catalunya, a DO where most grapes are produced for Cava but in recent years the regions winemakers have made a concerted effort to modernise and Oriel Perez de Tubela is a leading face in that change. Cartoixa Vermell is only grown in small amounts in the region and is the red version of Xarel-lo, the main grape in Cava production. The pigments give this wine an orange hue, though it drinks like a rosé.
