Castellroig Cava Brut NV
"Just off-dry, with light floral, orange and peach notes. A delicate style, with good balance." WS Web/07 "The entry level N.V. Cava Brut is light straw-colored with an attractive nose of mineral, biscuit, and apple. On the palate it has a solid core of fruit, crisp, racy flavors, and a refreshing finish. It is an excellent value...." WA 04/10
A nice bottle of bubbly with clean fruit and nice finish.
Bought from a tasting at California Wine Merchants in NY, a tour of non-Sonoma wines that included this bottle. After a trip to Spain in May and a Cava winery tour at Codorniu, it was a great first taste and opener to the flight we tasted that night. I bought a bottle to take home and used it for a special brunch at the end of the summer. The sublte flavors bit my tounge that morning and the light fruity taste let me hold on to summer a little longer.
