This cava is a blend of 35% Chardonnay, 35% Xarel·lo, 15% Macabeo, and 15% Parellada. Light golden in color, clear and bright with a nice mousse of medium sized bubbles. The nose has seltzer, slight diesel notes (which blew off with air), almonds and green apples. Medium bodied. On the palate, this has a nice complexity to it. Lemons, grapefruit, yeast and slight minerals. Good acidity. Nice finish. Hard to beat this for value in sparkling wine. Nice on its own, but better with food. Paella would be an obvious choice. Drink over the next few years.
This is a sparkling wine from Spain. It is a blend of 45% Xarel.lo, 40% Macabeo, 12% Parellada and 3% Malvasía de Sitges. Golden in color. A fair amount of smaller bubbles. The nose has char, and lemons. Nice mouthfeel. Good backbone of acidity. The lemons carry thru to the palate. Shorter finish. Drink over the next five years. Very food friendly, this makes a nice starter with appetizers for a holiday party or dinner.
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.
Light golden in color. Nice mousse of medium sized bubbles. The nose is all about red apples (fuji?). On the palate, this is frothy and slightly sweet. Not a serious wine but tasty and fun. It has a place in this world.
$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.
