Gran Castillo Rocio Cava Brut NV

Sparkling Wine from Spain
Review Date : 12-Mar-2017
Light golden colour with depth, paler on the rim, the bubbles very fine and moderately persistent, This has a well-concentrated and packed bouquet with a good core of white and yellow stonefruits harmoniously melded with nutty notes and a fine bready autolysis layer, unfolding apple elements with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features refined flavour of yellow stonefruits and apples, along with an amalgam of nutty and bready autolysis at the core. The mouthfeel is softly refreshing with creamy effervescence integrated with enlivening acidity. The wine flows along a fine-textured line leading to a crisp, dry finish of apples and nuts. This is a crisp, clean Cava with apple, stonefruit, nutty and bready flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with canapes over the next 2 years. A blend of 35% each Macabeo and Parellada, and 30% Xarello, the primary fermentation without MLF, the wine aged 9 month on lees with a resulting 11.5% alc. and 8 8 g/L RS. Lot 500KNZMSX115. 18.0/20.0 Mar 2017 RRP $21.45
