Gramona Cava Brut Gran Cuvee (2008)
Comments: One of the best value sparkling wines around. Tastes way more expensive than it is. A little toasty from some Chardonnay in the blend, which gives it a Champagne-y feel, yet with the typical crispness of a cava. Great bottle to have around just in case.

Llopart Rose Cava Brut Reserva (2007)
Comments: Can't go wrong with this beauty. Luscious berry notes, crisp and refreshing. Great summer wine that matches everything from snacks to BBQ, also perfect in colder months as an aperitif. One of those perfect "shape-shifting" wines that suits a variety of moods and occasions.
