My new favourite Cava, so pleasant just makes me smile when I drink it & the price point helps
Tasting Note: Bright straw in colour with good acidity, a medium intense nose, fine mousse & long length on the finish. Wine features yeast, brioche, pear, green apples, lemon rind, orange & limestone.
Interesting Point: On the back label the have taken out Macabeu & replaced it with Chardonnay. However, on the winery’s website it list Macabeu not Chard.
Pairings: Drink now or over the next 5-7 years on its own or pair it with Maple Syrup flavoured bacon.
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
