WINEMAKER: Felix Parellada/Covides

Cava, a sparking wine which is made in exactly the same way as Champagne, has fully established its identity in markets abroad in the last thirty years yet specialized bodegas - or Cava houses - have been producing on a commerical scale since the end of the 19th century. Cava’s name derives from the Spanish word for an underground cellar. Today Cava is second only to Champagne in world sales of sparkling wine.


PRESS
88 Points - Wine Enthusiast

“Dusty, creamy, powdered sugar aromas are nice and easygoing, while the palate has balance and a mouthfeel that caresses solid apple, citrus and peach flavors. Crisp on the finish, with a decent amount of elegance for a $15 wine. Hard to go wrong with this bubbly”.
