Cristalino Cava Brut Cava

Winemaker's Notes:

Crisp and toasty nose, this wine shows beautiful citrus and green apple fruit with a supple, yet lively mouth feel of very fine bubbles and a very clean finish. The ultimate celebration wine, it is excellent on its own or with a wide array of foods including fried foods, seafood, Asian dishes, caviar and sushi.

Interesting aromas of bread dough and lemon give way to a citrusy palate with an edge of buttered toast. Reasonably good finish for a budget sparkler. A great bubbly for mimosas, but ok on its own with food, as well. Would buy again.

Very tasty Champagne-esque sparkler. Very bready leesy notes add complexity to the lemon-driven fruit and crisp acidity. Great QPR!

Crisp, leesy, a touch of sweetness. Lemon. Simple but very pleasant. $9

I enjoyed this one as much as I like cooks,but Nancy did not like it at all. The flavors are a bit stronger and more pronounced

Straw color, smooth and fresh aromas; fine and fruity palate with a dry aftertaste. Clean, dry and crisp with citrus and apple flavors.

This brut is round, slightly yeasty and shows citrus aromas that veer toward lemon-lime.
