    Light floral aromas of orange blossom, green apple and pear with pungent spice and a hint of lemon. Expressive palate of Meyer lemon, grapefruit and apple with creamy pastry crust notes and a frolicking texture. There's a touch of tart citrus pith on the finish adding a bit of complexity to this agreeable crowd pleaser. Read More

  • Vilarnau Brut Rose Reserva Cava NV

    Snoothrank:

    Soft cherry notes on the nose are a bit gamey and savory with some melon rind and citrus pith. Quite rich in the mouth, this is tart and flavorful - showing strong cherry and raspberry notes, citrus and watermelon and earth with a good acidic backbone playing against the delicate bubbles.91 pts Read More
