Although the company evolved into being still wine focused, they continued with Cune Cava Brut represents a return to the future. This xarel·lo, macabeo and parellada blend floats along a dryish, biscuity palate, with dried apple, almond, and lemon pith holding this taut and bright. Lovely balance throughout, and excellent value for quality.Tasted: 01 November 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 23.99 select private retailers Producer: Compañía Vitivinícola del Norte de Espana (CVNE)Distributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
