Tasting Note

The character of lees aging shows in the toasted nut, slightly biscuit, character of the nose. The mouth exhibits a dried apple note, with some cherry and citrus, and a soft and gentle finish. Drink soon, though a few years are not too much to ask of this wine.

Wine Description

The Cava exhibits small bubbles with a persistent crown with a bright, pale-yellow color with golden reflections. The nose is intense with fruit aromas of green apple and slight aromas of aging, and the palate shows good structure with a good balance of flavors, persistent and smooth. The wine is great with seafood, salads or as an aperitif.
