Made from Spanish varieties, the Macabeo (67%) and Parellada (33%) grapes are grown at estate vineyards in the Penedès region outside of Barcelona. The estate dates back an actual millennium. The bubbly wine is light on its feet at 12% abv and comes in a decorative bottle with pewter embellishments. It's a heavy bottle, too, and can stand in as a doorstop when the party’s over. It’s imported by Freixenet, if that makes a difference to you. That's a pretty reliable name for Spanish sparklers.
The wine is made from nine different cuvées, vinified separately then blended. Aging takes place over 30 months, which means it takes three years to make this wine, grape to glass.
It's a fun sparkler that sits pale in the glass and smells of lemons and limes, with none of the toasty notes one gets in a Champagne. That's not the only difference between Cava and Champagne, either. Check the prices. The palate does show some earthiness along with the citrus, apples and minerals, which are dominant.

Super bubbly, the bubbles dance across your tongue, almost has Grigio aroma, beautiful pale yellow, easy drinking, honey smell with a lemony acidic taste in the mouth. Amazing with a sugar rim.
