Naveran Cava Dama de Naveran Extra Brut 2010
Naveraan Dama is an estate-bottled Cava to which proprietor Michel Guilleron Parellada wants to impart longevity and great body. The Naveran family legacy began in 1901. Today the Estate has 110 hectares (272 acres) of vines in the town of Torrelavit located in the Alt (high) Penedes subregion. Despite the fact that Cava is Spain's largest volume of wine exported to the U.S., Cavas are made utilizing the same methods used in Champagne and have remained Spain's best-kept secret for quality and value in wine. Caves Naveran is a premium Cava producer that uses estate-grown grapes. Naveran Dama is a Cava masterpiece, a combination of Chardonnay, which gives the wine body and volume, and Parellada, which imparts a zesty, bright character that cuts through the buttery roundness of the Chardonnay. Champagne lovers will enjoy this Mediterranean 'farmer's fizz' with oysters, raw tuna and sushi. Its fresh acidity also compliments fruit desserts, especially peaches and sliced oranges.
External Reviews for Naveran Cava Dama de Naveran Extra Brut
Predominantly chardonnay (85 percent), this sparkling wine is plump and floral, creamy in the middle, presented in a vinous style. The gentle flavors of toasted lees and almonds make it a clear match for crab.
Lively and fresh with a ton of complexity. You would be hard-pressed to fine a better sparkling wine under $50. The blend is dominated by Chardonnay which gives the wine a great citrus flavor. The finish is long and refreshing. It’s just delicious.
