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.

Approachable. pale gold, ample powerful babble. Citrus, green apple and white flowers w a touch of honey. Dry, mid acidity, a little ample body for 12% ABV. Mid finish. Apparently different style from champagne, friendly but good complexity.

One of my favorite Cavas. Little more expensive (~$20) but worth it for a special occasion. Light and crisp with great carbonation. Easy to drink but also lovely to have with light food. Pretty light blonde color.
