Llopart Brut Reserva Organic 2014

Penedès, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainToasted almonds, biscotti, lightly smoked stone and cider apples stream through this salty, racy cava. The finish vibrates with lingering ripples along the palate. The typical trio, macabeo, xarel-lo and parellada, from four estate vineyards spend 18 months on the lees. Eight g/l RS just rounds off some of the sharp edges, leaving lots of bright, crisp fruit intact. The Llopart clan are recorded as viticulturists dating back to 1385 (!) at their current estate. They have been making Cava since 1887. Today's sparkling labels reference the first lithograph Cava labels, illustrating the familial house, vineyards and surroundings.Tasted: 25 February 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 28.99 private wine shops Producer: Pere Llopart VilarosDistributors: The Drinks List
