Vichy Catalan Water Analysis:
|Country of Origin:||Spain|
|Place:||Caldes de Malavella|
|phone:||+34 932 387 900|
The best-known mineral water from Spain, Vichy Catalan has very high mineral content, natural carbonation, and an almost neutral pH.
Archaeological evidence suggests that the area near Caldes de Malavella has had a human population since prehistoric times. The many local sources of effervescent, thermal water were likely a major attraction. Both springs draw from a single aquifer, although each water emerges with a slightly different composition. Vichy Catalan water was first bottled in 1889, and an influx of visitors led to the construction of a spa soon after. Water and carbon dioxide gas are harvested separately from the source, after the water has cooled the gas is added back in.
#FineWatersPairingsSteak and Vichy Catalan is one of those classic matches for a water sommelier. The bold flavor of the steak and the bold flavor of the water is an experience and a revelation. It becomes clear that very few waters are a comparable pairing. Who needs a Bordeaux or Syrah with a steak when you can have Vichy Catalan.
