Lightly floral on the nose with hints of white flowers over gentle apple fruit with a squirt of lime, simple but fresh. In the mouth this shows off lovely citrus fruit over a nice integrated base of yeasty complexity. Rather light and distinctly fresh in the mouth, this is easy to drink and finishes on the dry side with refreshing dried citrus and mineral flavors. 86pts

Dusty on the nose and slightly vegetal, with some sweet herbal elements and a bit of gum. Not terribly effervescent and rather vinous, making this easy to drink. It’s got a touch of sweetness, but that is well balanced by the wine’s acidity which also supports the slightly candied strawberry/cherry/watermelon fruit on the mid-palate. The finish is clean and brisk if on the short side. This is a fun wine, fruity and easy to drink. 85pts

This is a wonderfully dry cava that is crisp and refreshing. This is not a buttery oaky sparkler.

The best value I've ever found in a sparkling wine to date!! I can't believe the complexity I experience in this wine given its low price point. Pale yellow with just a hint of green. Clean, fresh, and fruity but with unexpected depth coming from yeasty/bread-like notes and something more cutting yet savoury (like graphite or nut skins). Very dry. An incredible value.

Can't do much better for $7 in a sparkler. Better choice than their regular brut. Good red fruit & minerality.

Refreshing Brut Nature. Distinct lemon and citrus flavours, though not enough in the way of a "peel" texture for me. Went very well with pancakes and real Canadian maple syrup though!

I absolutely love this cava! Smooth, well rounded and it tastes more expensive than it is. Beautifully bubbly and not so heavy on apple like so many of the cheaper bubblies. Great for everyday type drinking

Very dry. Very sparkly. Bitter, a bit grassy.

Light aromas of petrol and lemon-lime are entirely correct for cava, and the palate pushes fresh fruit in the tangerine and grapefruit realm. Has a bit of heft and zap, with a dry, largely clean finish. Fine on its own; maybe better in a Spanish-style mimosa.

A juicy ros? cava, loaded with ripe cherry, blackberry and currant fruit, all framed by lively acidity. A good aperitif. Drink now. 50,000 cases made.

If you like a toasty, dry bubbly, Cristalino is a nice choice given the affordable price. Burnt bread notes mix with vanilla liqueur and green apples on the nose. The palate is bracingly dry and crisp, with lemon and petrol notes. The bead is aggressive, but the back palate nice nad the finish dry, with dusty cinnamon apple notes.(Wine Enthusiast)

Light, bright gold with a slow, fine bead. Pungent aromas of dried flowers, smoky herbs, orange peel and apple. Very complex for the price, offering round orchard and pit fruit flavors and bracingly bitter citrus pith. Finishes on a gently sweet note, with repeating notes of flowers and orange. This can be had for as little as $7 in some markets, which must make it the best sparkling wine value around.

A toasty bubbly, with lots of hazelnut, piecrust and vanilla with a touch of coffee grounds. there’s fresh acidity that’s well-integrated, with a lingering lemon candy-tinged finish. Drink now.

There’s plenty of enjoyment in this modestly priced wine, which has dusty, earthy aromas and just the slightest hint of citrus and melon. It’s very dry and faintly fruity. Has a bit of a scouring quality from high acidity, and it’s rough, but it’s exceptionally clean and brisk.

Winemaker's Notes:

Cristalino is always a solid go-to Cava. This brut is round, slightly yeasty and shows citrus aromas that veer toward lemon-lime. The palate is healthy and clean, with a narrow set of citrus and apple flavors. Fairly full and long on the finish, which makes the whole package more than worthwhile given the cost.

<p>Very toasty nose with hits of apple. Light bodied and easy going palate with infused flavors of green apple, lime and pear. Perfect for celebrations and good with sushi, asian dishes and caviar.</p>
