Hand harvested grapes and processing via a gravity flow system bring this vintage cava to life.
An opulent Cava, this wineandrsquo;s mineral tones match earthiness to discreet lime-citrus fruit. It has the nuttiness of fresh almonds and pale roots, like Jerusalem artichokes and ground nuts. Dark tones in the finish give it a wild side, deep and meaty enough for butter-poached lobster.
Pinpoint-fine bubbles and fresh, vinous flavors make this an impressive Cava. Scents of apple and white flowers combine with mouthwatering mineral acidities to give it a substantive feel, even as it finishes clean and refined. Serve it with fried zucchini blossoms or jambon de Jabugo.
A blend of macabeo with xerel-lo and parellada from a family estate in Penedandegrave;s, Landrsquo;Hereu is an elegant Cava in 2008. It yields gentle scents of wildflower honey, herbs and mint over a creamy texture, finishing clean. Still tight, this wine should develop well with a year or two of bottle age.
