Food Pairings for Cristalino Brut Cava
I don't typically buy sparkling wines but I picked up a magnum of this one after seeing it at world market for $15. This was listed on the top 100 best buy wine list according to Wine Enthusiast in 2008. Citrus lemon-lime taste with a background of green apple. Long lasting finish with an overall clean, crisp taste. Nice value.
Toast for sure on the nose. Definite apples, like when you cut an apple and leave it out and it just starts to turn brown... that's what this reminds me of. Not terribly complex but I digg this and I'm not a huge fan of the bubbles. Awesome buy for the price. 6 to 7 dollars and better than any champagne I've had.
for the price, this is a great aperitif wine.
Love this sparkling for everyday drinking. Toast, apple, fresh and inexpensive. We drink all the time. For the price definately worth keeping at least one bottle or two on hand. Give it a 4 because of the value.
Very nice brut cava for the inexpensive cost.
This is the best low-price sparkler I have found. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on the bottle you get) there is not a lot of consistency bottle to bottle. But that said, if you're looking for a low-price this is your best bet.
easily a best value in bubbly.
External Reviews for Cristalino Brut Cava
This soft, fruit forward Cava has a lovely nose of apples, toast & cinnamon. There are rich flavors of ripe apples & figs with a clean citrus finish. Simple and fun, this is a great aperitif.
Subtle, leesy aromas of apple, spices, flowers and nuts. Dry, racy and perfumed, with intense ginger and apple flavors complicated by nutty and floral nuances. Finishes quite dry and restrained. Unusually subtle, fresh, clean Cava.
Tastes rich, with vanilla and honey framing peach and citrus flavors. It's all nicely balanced and lingering on the finish. Drink now.
Straw color, smooth and fresh aromas; fine and fruity palate with a dry aftertaste. Clean, dry and crisp with citrus and apple flavors.
This soft, fruit-forward Cava has a lovely nose of apples, toast, and cinnamon. The rich flavors of ripe apples and figs finish with a clean citrus note. Simple and fun, this is a great apéritif.
