Cune Cava Brut NV

Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, Penedès, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainBack in the 19th Century, Rioja's CVNE produced consistent quantities of sparkling wine to fill the void for the Champagne region, ravaged by phylloxera. Although the company evolved into being a still wine specialist, Cune Cava Brut represents a return to the future. The process is traditional méthode with long-term bottle ageing and riddling by gyropalette. You can expect a delightful fizz with the same balance and acidity that is the hallmark of Cune. It has an appealing fresh fruit nose with a yeasty/almond undertone. The palate is creamy and bright with nutty, green apple fruit and a mostly dry finish: a perfect patio, party starter you can serve with what else - pinchos and tapas. The blend of grapes is xarel·lo, macabeo and parellada.Tasted: 27 March 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 currently not in BC Producer: Compañía Vitivinícola del Norte de Espana (CVNE)Distributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
