Codorníu brand manager Carolyn d’Aguilar, says: “Codorníu has the oldest and largest plantings of Pinot Noir in Spain and has gained a reputation as the Spanish Pinot Noir expert. Anna de Codorníu Blanc de Noirs gives us the opportunity to showcase our expertise with this varietal.
“Cava has been performing really well in the UK in 2011 and is currently in second position as the most widely consumed sparkling wine on a regular basis, according to Wine Intelligence.”
The Anna de Codorníu range also includes a brut and a rosé cava.
