NV Poema Cava, Spain, Penedes, Wine Review

Light silvery gold in color.  A fair amount of medium sized bubbles.  The nose is clean with slight citrus and minerals.  Also a bit of a burnt note.  On the palate, this is slightly bitter.  Easy drinking.  Not a lot of depth but would be a perfect mix for mimosas or other sparkling mixed drinks.  

NV Joios Cava Brut, Spain - Wine Review

$12 gets you this delightful sparkler.  Perfect for mixing or drinking on its own at parties.  Light gold in color.  Lots of medium to large bubbles.  The nose is lemony which carries thru to the palate.  Apparently there is no Xarelo in this but it is 100% Chardonnay.  It certainly punches above its weight class.  Outstanding value.  

Simple Summer Wines from Spain

Summertime for most of the United States means the return of vegetation. Both our rural and urban areas come alive with the blossoming of flowers, the production of fruits and vegetables and the long hours of sunshine. We spend countless evenings cherishing this season. As we relax, whether on our own patio or at a neighborhood restaurant, we look for refreshing wines to share the intimate harmony between both humanity and nature.
