Wine Review: Reiterating what I said earlier, Cava should be the first sparkler that comes to mind when you are looking for one. The Finca Hispana may be the best value of them all as it undergoes 22 months of bottle aging before it is released for the market. The depth of this wine is only equaled by more expensive wines from regions like Burgundy and California. This Cava has the upfront notes of fruits like apples, peaches, and Bartlett pears. The mid-palate is rounded by tropical flavors like pineapples, mangos, and papaya while the finish has the standard brioche found in well-made sparklers. The finish has been one of the longest yet which only further exemplifies my belief that Cava is underrated. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Color: Pale straw. Nose: Dry, minimal Nose, but with small concentrated bubbles. Palate: It is dry, light on the Palate, with a refreshing acidity; perfect for celebrating with friends, or as an aperitif

Organic status: not organic

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Finca Hispana Brut Imperial Reserva Cava.
