Cristalino Cava Brut Macabeo Spain Penedès Cristalino White NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Beautiful scents of raspberry and cherry on the nose with fresh, clean strawberry and cherry flavors in the mouth, and a consistent bead. The finish is clean and crisp and invites another sip. An excellent match for fried appetizers such as calamari or light desserts such as creme brulee. It is also excellent on its own or with fresh fruit.

aromas of raspberries, candied cherries and dough, the palate offers some red apples, crisp and easy drinking

Tart cherry on the nose. This is a well priced sparkler (i saw it had won a value award from Wine and Spirits Magazine). Its fairly plain, and doesnt offer too much complexity, but seriously for less than $10 what is there to complain about.

This juicy rosé is very tasty and well-balanced, with lots of red and black fruit notes, joined by ripe cherry, spice, almond and lemon zest flavors. Moderate finish. Drink now.

A juicy roseacute; cava, loaded with ripe cherry, blackberry and currant fruit, all framed by lively acidity. A good aperitif. Drink now.

A moussy, creamy, fresh and light Champagne, with velvet apples and cream character. There is a touch of citrus, but this so-fruity wine is lively and instantly delicious.

All the Cristalino cavas are “metodo tradicional”; the rose is especially interesting; aromatic and flavorful with hints of strawberry and cherry; not totally dry; great for brunch.

Salmon-colored and dense, with aromas of clay, cherry and brown sugar. Pinot Noir-ish in its smoky, dried-berry palate and peppery finish. Robust, solid and with texture.

Bright tangerine color, high-toned red-wine flavors with zingy citrus acidity.

A vinous version, showing an array of ground spices, with well-meshed flavors of sun-dried cherry, macerated plum, toasted almond and subtle balsamico. Lively, with a creamy bead. Drink now.
