On the first day of Christmas The Wine Gallery sent to me, a bottle of Mainegra Cava Brut Nature from Spain 💃This is the first bottle in my Wine Advent Calendar as you may have seen in my video this morning 🎥🤦🏼‍♀️

Also in day 1 was a little tasting bottle of Grampians Olive Co’s Truffle Infused Organic EVOO 🤤

I was really excited to find a bottle of cava behind the first door of our advent calendar as Mr Spittoon and I spent 6 weeks in the Penedes region in Spain drinking cava every day back in 2011. This cava:

🍾 Is certified organic
🍾 Spends over a year on its lees

I loved it! It’s a crisp yellow colour with a golden shimmer to it in the glass. Vibrant notes of cut apples and pears with a hint of brioche and lemon tempt the nostrils. While in the mouth had a sooth & creamy mouth feel and it tastes just like you’re biting into the most delectable apple of your life. The wonderfully refreshing citrusy finish leaves your mouth watering for more 🥂

A massive thanks to TWG for this joyous sample 🤶

In 2011 Mr. Spittoon and I spent about 6 weeks in the Penedes in Spain which is the region that produces the Spanish sparkling wine 'Cava'. We tasted at least over 100 different Cavas so it's safe to say we like it! Hence why I picked this bottle from Mainegra for the latest #thetcwineclub tasting box. What did you guys think??

Here's my thoughts...

Crisp yellow colour on the eye with apple and lemon dominating the nose, I may have even picked up a whiff of elderflower. It has the typical Cava MO (modus operandi) on the palate - vibrant and completely refreshing. It was a great match to our fish'n'chips as it really cut through the grease.
