Gran Campo Viejo Cava Brut Reserva NV

Sparkling Wine from Spain
Review Date : 08-Jul-2018
Bright, even straw-yellow with light, lemon-gold hues, paler on the edge, the bubbles moderately fine but vigorous. The nose is softly full with good depth of yellow stonefruit aromas harmoniously melded with sweetly ripe apples, hints of herbs and nuts, along with earthiness, unveiling a steely freshness from the core. Dryish to taste and light-medium bodied, soft and gentle effervescence introduces light and accessible flavours of stonefruits, apples, nuts and herbs with a little earth. The flavours grow to form a rounded heart with good presence. The wine flows easily along a light, phenolic-textured line with restrained acidity leadling to a light finish. This is a soft and rounded Cava with fruit-focussed flavours, showing stonefruits, apples, nuts and a little earth, with gentle mousse and a light-textured line. This is easy and delightful as an anytime sparkling to enjoy over the next 2 years. A blend of Parellada, Xa-rello and Macabeo from Catalonia, fermented to make the base wine then undergoing secondary fermentation in bottle to 11.5% alc. and 12 g/LRS, the wine aged 18 months before release. Lot L 11 10 6. 17.0-/20 Jul 2018 RRP $26.99
