Cava…. If you have not yet tried this Spanish specialty, this is a good place to start. A glass of Cava is a refreshing match to an appetising plate of tapas, or grilled scallops, or a much needed glass after work. While Cava is made using the native Spanish grapes Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada, but using the traditional method (as in Champagne), it is Cava that offers more change out of the budget.
This is a bigger style of cava with a rich creamy palate. The lemon citrus and creamy pastry spices keep the scented white peach fresh. The bubbles here are soft and smooth adding to the luxuriousness of the creamy palate. It is hard to resist this smooth operator.
