Loxarel Sàniger, Brut Reserva 2014, Penedès, Spain
Tasting Note: There is more to sparkling wine from Spain than cava, and this sparkling with from Penedès proves the heights sparkling wine can reach in Spain.
Pale-intensity lemon in color with tight bubbles, this wine has a nose of green apple, pear and blossom with faint hints of caramel.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied brut delivers structured, medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completes with a medium-plus, biscuit-and-fruit-infused finish.
The wine is creamy in texture with mid-palate flavor concentration and complexity.
Bottle Note: Xarel-lo, Macabeu, Parellada. Second fermentation: natural fermentation into the bottle with the yeast. Disgorging only after order to deliver it at the best conditions to all our customers.
