Superb Gold medal Cava made by the same method as Champagne. It’s from one of Spain’s oldest family estates, whose fine fizz is served in over 20 Michelin starred restaurants across Spain and Portugal, even beating Dom Pérignon in a blind tasting!
This outstanding Cava comes from the Oriol Rossell estate in the highest part of Penedès (an area ideal for sparkling wine thanks to cooler temperatures). The family founded the property as far back as 1637, and have now been making wine for over 40 years. Unusually these days, they make their fizz by the same method as Champagne, with the second fermentation in bottle, and turn each bottle by hand. The wine is then aged for nearly two years on lees (the spent yeasts that created the fizz during the fermentation in bottle) to ensure rich complexity and full body. It’s organic, too! With ripe apple and peach notes and complex toasty length, it makes a very fine apéritif with toasted salted almonds, jamón iberico, olives and other tapas.
"Love it. Who needs champagne when this is so good and less than half the price!"
