Borrasca, Cava Brut, Catalonia, Spain
Tasting Note: A good, fruit-forward cava.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of lemon citrus peel, pear, golden apple and blossom with a hint of caramel.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied cava has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a lemon-citrus-infused, medium finish.
The wine is straightforward and bright.
A good value for an entry-level cava.
Bottle Note: Produced using the traditional cava method, this wine represents authentic Spanish quality sparkling wine and spends at least 9 months in the bottle. It is crisp, clean and well balanced and features delicate aromas and unique freshness. The unmistakable taste leads from a full ripe apple, pear and bright citrus nose, encouraging big, round, soft flavors in the mouth. The finish is appealing and long with a slight touch of ginger. A perfect wine for brunch, as well as with desserts such as nuts, puff pastries and chocolate treats.
