Cristalino Brut Rose Cava NV
External Reviews for Cristalino Brut Rose Cava
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 and the finish dry, with dusty cinnamon apple notes.
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.
A sophisticated sparkler, this is a big, bold wine, with scents of spring blossoms, of cinnamon, spice and of sage, with a dry roasted almond flavor that keeps it firmly in Spain. Chill this for croquetas de bacalao.
Light bodied. Moderate acidity. Mild fruit. Citrus, earth, minerals, peach. Crisp balanced between stone fruits and citrusy acidity, this offers nice light summertime drinking.
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.
A full-flavored, assertive Spanish sparkler that starts with toasty, spicy aromas, then wraps its nutty, fruity flavors in a rich texture. Lingers nicely on the finish, too. Lots of character for this price range.
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.
