Macabeo Xarel Lo Parellada

Juvé y Camps

Gran Reserva de la Familia Brut Nature Cava Macabeo-Xarel-lo-Parellada 2017

Juvé & Camps Brut Nature Gran Reserva is a great reason for all those who, over the last decade have turned their backs on Spanish sparkling wine, in favour of ‘that Italian wine’…..(I forget its name….), to perhaps reconsider the merits of a really good, traditionally made Spanish fizz. This particular 2017 vintage is a rich medium gold, medium intensity on the nose, but giving a hint of the Pear, Honey and Peach that is abundant on the palate. Very slight residual sugar gives way to some ginger & spice, then rich and toasty elements due to its time on the lees and around 36 months ageing in bottle. At a price point of around £15 this represents absolutely fantastic value for money and gives a very credible alternative to its…..grand frère. — 4 days ago

Raventos i Blanc

de Nit Rosé Cava Blend 2018

Pale salmon in color. Honeysuckle, herbs and a touch of anise on the nose. Bruised apple (or mealy apple, really), quince, and a bit of buttered toast. A celebration drink after my 9 year olds choir concert. For which he selected “Chipotle!” as his special treat dinner 🤣. Good thing this will go! — 9 days ago
