One of the most responsible ways to spend $8. Don't think just drink.

A great QPR value!! (for the $7-10 it will set you back).

Serve it fridge-cold and I think even discerning palates will come back for a second pour.

This was the top winner of the night for our bubble tasting. It tied with two others for first place out of 22 bottles. In a smaller group of tasters it came in 6 out of 6.

My 555th review ...
Light straw in color with a golden hue.

On the nose, yeast, tropical fruits, lemon and bread.

Medium bodied with big full bubbles and crisp.

Dry on the palate and tart with limes, grapefruits, bread, and cream.

Crisp Short finish.

This Spanish Cava is made the traditional way, and was great with Thanksgiving dinner. Not too sophisticated yet enjoyable.

11.5% alcohol by volume.

Tangy fizz with lingering citrus notes - but not over the top. Very easy and enjoyable to drink.

Nice nose, a refreshing, yet dry sparkling wine...

Low-cost Cava, 1.89€ in Spain. Not a great wine, quite simple, but the QPR is incredible! 1+1 cork, I appreciate it very much.

Light. Good effervescence. Somewhat dry. Lightly tart. Otherwise basic champagne taste
