Wine Review: This pale straw wine opens with a bouquet of flowers; from lilac to roses, and everything in between. Like the Mas Fi Brut Nature the Mas Fi Brut is also pronounced with Granny Smith apples but instead of custard there are white peaches and cashew. The bubbles are larger and rounder than those found in the Brut Nature, but that should be expected as this is supposed to be more of crowd pleaser. Even though this is a very dry wine, there are plenty of white peaches, caramelized pears, and golden apple flavors to balance it out. There is a mild astringency to the finish, but nothing critical. Another fine example from Mas Fi. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Mas Fi Brut Cava is an elegant and balanced sparkling wine. Undergoing second fermentation in this bottle, it is aged for 10 months providing its fine bubbles and complex and structured palate. There are notes of white flowers and citrus on the nose, with fresh stone fruits and pleasant creamy flavors in the mouth. Perfect for your next celebration, as an aperitif or with a wide array of cuisines. Serve at 42°-46°F.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Are all wines meant to be aged? No. In fact, perhaps 90% of today's wines are vinified for consumption within 2 years of the vintage.
