Gran Sarao Brut Cava, NV, Penedès, Spain

13 Aug

DSCN1779-001While most Spanish sparkling wine houses source their grapes from far and wide chasing a “house style,” “grower” Cavas are expressions of a single vineyard or estate. This one shows notes of yeasty bread, apricot, green apples and wet stone, and the tiny bubbles are a delight to behold. In addition to the traditional Cava grape varieties, a small percentage of Chardonnay is added to the cuvee for extra richness and florality. Pop it with some simply grilled fish and this bubbly will turn any evening into a celebration. $12
