Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, Penedès, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainCava Varias continues to impress for the price, no doubt helped by a sparkling wine pedigree since 1918 in the Alt Penedès region. The nose is Cava bright with fresh, persistent citrus, melon notes with a dusting of dried herbs. The blend is a mix of traditional grapes 30/40/20 macabeo, xarel.lo and parellada. The palate is equally fresh and bright but with creamy, delicious lees, and fresh baked brioche notes in the finish. Estate grown and bottled, I love the value here. A perfect party sparkler for sushi, tacos, or a charcuterie plate.Tasted: 01 December 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 17.99 BCLS Producer: Cava VariasDistributors: Enoteca Bacco
