For a well-made sparkling wine with balance, flavor and a bit of sweetness, look no further. This one features pretty apple, lemon and yeast aromas prior to honey, melon and apple flavors. Finishes smooth and stylish, proving that a cava can be slightly sweet yet rock solid.Add winemaker's notes

For a well-made sparkling wine with balance, flavor and a bit of sweetness, look no further. This one features pretty apple, lemon and yeast aromas prior to honey, melon and apple flavors. Finishes smooth and stylish, proving that a cava can be slightly sweet yet rock solid.
Off dry, with green herbs and candy corn on the nose. Stays the course on the palate, with sweetness and just enough offsetting zest. Best for fans of sweet wines.
One of my personal favorites among the giant collection of Freixenet cavas in the extra dry, which isn’t dry in the least. Just the opposite, it’s loaded with sweet apple and apricot aromas along with peach, melon and candied citrus flavors. Best of all, it maintains its poise while never falling toward cloying or sappy.
From the initial whiff of sweet hay and apple to its apple-lime flavors, all bounded by a measured hint of sweetness, this is a happy-go-lucky Cava to enjoy with strawberries and cream, or at any festive event.
Some things never change. Put this sturdy, mildly nutty and fairly bright cava on that list. Year after year, the palate remains comfortably sweet and bubbly, but not too much so. And the round apple, pear and lime flavors even bring a shade of spice along for the ride.
Lively and relatively dry, with honey and apple flavors, on a moderately firm structure. Drink now.
Pear, butterscotch, apple, and grapefruit seem all to play a role in the aromatic pleasure, while the wine’s off-dry style seems richer than most bruts.
