Cune Cava Brut NV

Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, Penedès, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainThis impressive cava is clean, elegant, fresh and satisfying to sip. Delicate white flowers start the aroma parade, joined by lemon, peach, and brioche. There is apparent yeasty complexity and absolutely none of the rubbery whiffs that mar some cavas. Brightly focused flavours of apple, stone fruit and pastry bounce on a pillowy mousse. Most impressive is a dusty, saline, limestone finish that shows a clear stamp of quality terroir. Priced in the premium cava range, but it assuredly belongs there. Pair with grilled peaches wrapped in Iberico ham.Tasted: 23 May 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 currently not in BC Producer: Compañía Vitivinícola del Norte de Espana (CVNE)Distributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
