Neutral yet clean, with pineapple and lemon-lime on both the nose and palate. Nothing out of the ordinary here. It’s exactly as it has been for years, bubbly, a touch sweet and satisfying.
This bubbly’s simplicity is its calling card. It pitches sweet pear aromas along with notes of white bread. Flavors of orange, lemon and melon are just as they should be, with a touch of sweetness. Not terribly complex, but correct in a steady, mass-appeal way.
Consistency at a good price is what this textbook cava is all about. The bouquet offers you basic fruit-cocktail aromas, while the palate is sort of plump as it pours on the nectarine and ripe peach flavors. Easygoing, with some weight and roundness.
There’s nothing not to like about this affordable Spanish bubbly. The nose is a little candied and shy, but it’s pleasant overall. The palate foams a bit more than a stately Cava might, but the flavors of pear, apple and grapefruit are honest. Fresh yet soft, simple and easygoing.
Yellow apple aromas and flavors get some pick-up from nectarine, and while it’s sweet and a bit candied, that’s the Carta Nevada style. The finish picks up some extra size, leaving a big wash of sweet citrus flavors.
This charming sparkler is marked by citrus and hay scents, with a light touch of sweetness in the finish; it’s ideal for tapas of any kind.
Shows an appealing earthy-chalky note alongside daisies and fresh ginger that gives this Cava more complexity than most others. Spicy and earthy on the finish.
