Wine Review: This almost clear colored Cava with very tiny bubbles opens with a very faint rose petal and mild toasted walnut bouquet. On the palate, this wine initially bursts with effervescent bubbles, then it becomes light bodied, nicely balanced and approachable. The flavor profile is a gentle apple with notes of nicely integrated minerality with a touch of lemon verbena. The finish is dry and its flavors stick around for a while. The Panel thought this was a very good sipping Cava. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Estate-bottled. Xarel-lo, Parellada and Macabeo given extended skin contact, aged between 24 and 30 months. A clean, elegant and complex style of CAVA well suited to food pairings.
