Straw yellow in colour, with a small, fine, plentiful mousse. The opening aromas are of the aging on lees, lightly smokey, with touches of biscuit or bread, which are followed by hints of honey, fruit and flower petals. The palate is excellent, fruity and full of flavor, with dried fruits from the lees ageing, but very elegant, giving the drinker a delightful sense of abundance.
Sommelier's Recommendation: This Cava defines elegant refreshment, even in its presentation. It is a perfect companion to truffle influenced dishes, such as truffle oil drizzled pastas. White fish - sole or monkfish à la meuniére, or even traditional Mediterranean casseroles are perfect companions, as are cooked or cured hams, and soft white cheeses such as brie or camembert. It marries perfectly with meat dishes, such as fillet of venison slow braised in a shallot sauce.
Wine EnthusiastVery solid and sturdy, with aromas of apple, lemon-lime, soda cracker and mineral. The palate is fuller and more flavorful than your average cava, with candied apple, papaya, lime and lemon flavors. Dry, pithy and hinting at complexity on the finish.
