Wine Review: This pale straw colored Cava from Spain opens with some tiny bubbles and a fragrant bread dough, green apple, and wet stone bouquet. On the palate, wine is medium bodied, creamy, and approachable. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused green apple with hints of lime, strawberry, saline, and ginger. The finish is dry and refreshing. The panel suggested pairing this very nice sparkler with spring rolls or sushi. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Huguet family devotes certain high parcels to the production of world-class sparkling wine, blending the Montonec and Macabeo with a significant percentage Pinot Noir. Aged a minimum of 30 months, hand-riddled and disgorged on order.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
