La Escapada Cava Demi Sec NV

Penedès, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainThis demi-sec (mid-sweet) Cava is a blend of 55 percent Macabeo, 40 percent Parellada and 5 percent Chardonnay from a small 20 hectare estate just outside Sant Sadurni d'Anoia. The highest point of the region, this is just off the Mediterranean sea, with views of the Montserrat mountains to the north.This aged one year in the bottle, and carries 35 g/l RS through the brisk finish. Sweet pear, apple sauce fill the generously sweet form, with a red apple peel and pink grapefruit pithiness to counter. If you're looking for a sweet fizz to pair to angel food cake or pear clafouti, look no further. Well made for the style.Tasted: 27 July 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
